SEARCH is pleased to welcome a new gubernatorial appointee to our Membership Group, representing the District of Columbia: Ms. Mannone Butler, Executive Director of the District of Columbia Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC).
Ms. Butler was appointed to the SEARCH Membership by District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser on January 22, 2019.
The CJCC is an independent District agency that serves as a forum for identifying issues and their solutions, proposing actions, and facilitating cooperation to improve public safety in the District of Columbia for its residents, visitors, victims, and offenders.
As Executive Director, an appointed position she has held since 2011, Ms. Butler is responsible for bringing together local, federal, legislative, executive, and judicial leaders to develop comprehensive strategies to address long-standing and emerging criminal and juvenile justice issues facing the District of Columbia. She oversees the District’s integrated justice information system, JUSTIS, and the District’s Statistical Analysis Center. Further, she is responsible for developing process efficiencies for the optimization of agency resources, reviewing cost drivers, and monitoring effective performance metrics. Under her management, the CJCC has been designated a criminal justice agency for information sharing purposes and received an Excellence.gov award for Intergovernmental collaboration in 2012 for JUSTIS.
