As part of the review of the City Justice Center (CJC) Jail the Corrections Task Force is offering citizens an opportunity to provide information pertaining to the City Justice Center, either in writing or in person via scheduled Zoom meetings. 

Due to time constraints, there will be limited time slots available. Individuals will have 2 minutes to speak, and Organizations will have 5 minutes to speak. Therefore written/typed communication is recommended. Zoom meetings will be part of a public meeting. Written communication must be received or postmarked by February 22, 2021. All communications submitted by the public should pertain solely to the City Justice Center.

The role of the Task Force will be to read and/or listen to the information provided and take the information under consideration when conducting the CJC review. The Task Force will not be able to respond to the information provided in any way. While the Task Force will conduct a general review of the CJC operations, immediate focus will be on the following topics:

  1. To investigate the alleged concerns and complaints regarding food, water, temperature, and clothing.

  2. The need to begin moving cases through the 22nd Judicial Circuit and any other measures to address the isolation and uncertainty resulting from the halting of court cases for nearly one year due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

  3. To become apprised of the urgent building and equipment needs of the facility, which is approximately 20 years old.
