Wk 6 stakeholders Planning Committees in Criminal Justice Discussion

Week 6 Discussion

Planning Committees

One way that criminal justice organizations involve stakeholders is by recruiting interested citizens to serve on planning committees. Some of these citizens may be local officials; others may be citizens who just want to get involved. The key is that all committee members must have the best interests of the community at heart.

Post by Day 3, three types of planning committees that are important for criminal justice organizations to open up to stakeholders. Describe the purpose of each, the types of stakeholders most likely to make the committees successful, and what is expected of each stakeholder. Finally, explain the importance of diversity among stakeholders on the planning committees.
