The California Council on Criminal Justice records consist of 7 cubic feet of textual records and 16 audiocassettes. The record group is organized into five series: Executive Director’s Files, 1968-1974; Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) Files, 1968-1973; Meeting Files, 1968-1973 and 1975-1989; Subject Files, 1968-1974 and 1976-1978; and Committee Files, 1976-1978.
The California Council on Criminal Justice (CCCJ) was created in 1967 by the Deukmejian-Moretti Act to evaluate state and local programs associated with crime prevention, law enforcement, and criminal justice administration (Statutes 1967, ch. 1661). The enacting statute charged the Council with encouraging “the preparation and adoption of comprehensive plans for the improvement and coordination of all aspects of law enforcement and criminal justice” (Statutes 1967, ch. 1661). The Council was established in anticipation of Congressional enactment of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, which allocated federal grant funding for criminal justice research. In early 1969, the Council was designated by Executive Order R13-69 as the state agency responsible for the administration of funds available to California under this act and for criminal justice planning statewide.
