CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMISSION
The North Dakota Criminal Justice Commission was created and funded in 1974 through a Law Enforcement Assistance Administration grant under the auspices of the University of North Dakota and the North Dakota Combined law Enforcement Council. The purpose of the Commission was to conduct public hearings and research in an effort to develop standards and goals for law enforcement agencies and criminal justice systems in North Dakota and to submit legislative proposals to the State Legislature to implement the Commission's recommendations. The Commission consisted of 50 members appointed by the Governor, Attorney General, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Commission was divided into six task forces which studied and made recommendations on particular areas of concern. The task forces centered on Community Crime Prevention, Corrections, Courts, Criminal Justice Systems, Police, and Juvenile Justice. The Commission was phased out after publication of its report, North Dakota Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals, in 1975.
