In August 2018, City Council approved the creation of the Greensboro Criminal Justice Advisory Commission (GCJAC), which reports directly to council and the City Manager’s Office.

This commission is made up of nine council-appointed residents who are tasked with reviewing criminal justice issues and working closely with the Greensboro Police Department.

The commission meets at 6 pm on the third Thursday of each month. Full commission meetings are open to the public. Meetings for the remainder of 2018 are listed below and meeting agendas and minutes will be linked to from the box on the right.

For complaint cases referred to the commission, all commissioners will be trained and capable of serving, along with the three PCRB board members. This ensures a quorum to avoid any delay in hearing a case.

Other individuals have expressed interest in working with the Commission and will selectively be offered a role on a “Community Outreach” sub-committee. This will enable the commission to identify long-term interest and potential replacement for the future.
