County, Court, and Justice Leaders Framework

Aligning county, court, and justice leaders with local behavioral health and public health stakeholders to create systems change

Who We Are

The County, Court, and Justice Leaders: A Framework for Cross-System Collaboration is an initiative supported by the State Justice Institute to provide support to cross-sector teams to align the activities of county, court, and justice leaders to support the development of shared strategies.

Cross-sector teams can use the framework to identify local justice challenges and opportunities, prioritize solutions grounded in evidence, align resources across agencies, and build a structure to monitor progress and success. County leaders and their justice partners can use this framework to tackle diverse local priorities, from reducing community violence, building a behavioral health continuum, reducing overdose deaths, establishing diversion and alternative to incarceration opportunities, strengthening family justice systems, and reintegrating individuals back into the community upon reentry.

The solutions to complex justice-related challenges frequently require more than a single program. The Courts and Counties framework focuses on sustainable, system-level change and cross-sector alignment that supports healthy and safe individuals, families, and communities.
