Elrich Seeks Applicants for Criminal Justice Coordinating Commission

County Executive Marc Elrich is seeking applicants to fill two public vacancies on the Criminal Justice Coordinating Commission.

The 32-member Commission includes representatives of criminal justice agencies, local municipalities, judges, elected officials and the public-at-large. The Commission must evaluate the organization and adequacy of law enforcement and the administration of justice in the County.

Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for in-person meetings attended. Meetings must be held at least four times per year. The full Commission currently meets by video- and teleconference every other month at 7:30 AM on the fourth Wednesday of the month, and steering committee meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of months when the full Commission does not meet. Members are also asked to serve on ad hoc committees. When in-person meetings resume in the future, the Commission will meet in Rockville.

Applicants of diverse, backgrounds, professions, genders, geography, abilities, ethnicities, and ages are encouraged to apply. Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Members must complete training on the Maryland Open Meetings Act and basic parliamentary procedure. The County Executive’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications will be forwarded to the Council for confirmation and may be made public as part of the confirmation process. The deadline for application is June 28, 2021.
