Snohomish County Seeks Residents’ Participation in Regional Law and Justice Council
Applications to fill six new positions on the Snohomish County Law and Justice Regional Council will be accepted through October 9, 2020
EVERETT, Wash., September 25, 2020 – Snohomish County is seeking to fill six newly established positions on the Snohomish County Law and Justice Regional Council (Law and Justice Council). Applications are being sought from county residents who represent historically marginalized, underrepresented, and underserved communities.
The Law and Justice Council was originally established by the Snohomish County Council pursuant to the requirements of RCW 72.09.300. The Law and Justice Council serves as an advisory body to the Snohomish County Council on issues relating to the law and justice system. The body is composed of partners in the justice system including members representing law enforcement, public defense, prosecutors, courts, juvenile justice, and elected officials. Recently, six new positions dedicated to community members from marginalized, underrepresented, and underserved communities were created. These positions were created to ensure that the communities that have been harmed or underserved by the justice system are heard and have equitable say in discussions about the law and justice system in our community.
The powers and duties of the Law and Justice Council are to:
- Address criminal justice issues as provided in RCW 72.09.300;
- Make recommendations and/or provide advice to the county council and/or other members of the law and justice council;
- Create subcommittees to evaluate or research areas related to criminal justice; and
- Serve as a focal point for information sharing by law and justice task forces and/or committees.
