The National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability (NCCJD) is the first national effort of its kind to bring together both victim and suspect/offender issues involving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. An effort of The Arc of the United States, NCCJD is building the capacity of the criminal justice system to respond to gaps in existing services for people with disabilities, who remain a hidden population with little or no access to advocacy supports or services.
Our Unique Contribution
NCCJD offers many resources including training and technical assistance (both web-based and on-site), an online resource library, white papers, literature reviews and reports to promote identification and evaluation support of promising practices. Additionally, the organization provides public awareness and issue-specific marketing and communications strategies. All their resources are provided through their website which also offers a robust national resource library.
