Saskatchewan Justice

A Community Justice Committee (CJC) is a group of citizen volunteers who work with police and other justice professionals to:

  • Advise police and other justice professionals on justice matters in their community;
  • Provide public education on justice-related topics to the community;
  • Support crime prevention activities in the community; and
  • Provide conflict resolution opportunities to members of the community where the law has been broken.

The following four links provide more information about the roles and responsibilities of a Community Justice Committee, and how citizens can become involved in establishing and operating a CJC.

CJCs operate in rural and urban communities across Saskatchewan. Working in partnership with the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, and the Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations operates parallel Community Justice Committees in First Nations Communities.
