Gov. Brian Kemp announced the appointment of Rome Police Chief Denise Downer-McKinney to the state’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) on Monday.

CJCC represents the culmination of many efforts to establish a statewide body that would build consensus and unity among the State’s diverse and interdependent, criminal justice system components.

CJCC is legislatively charged with eleven areas of criminal justice coordination.

Among those responsibilities is to serve as the statewide clearinghouse for criminal justice information and research; develop criminal justice legislative and executive policy proposals; and serve in an advisory capacity to the Governor on issues impacting the criminal justice system.
