2013 Statewide Accountability Court Funding Use and Needs Survey
The Georgia Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) is pleased to release the final report of the 2013 Statewide Accountability Court Funding Use and Needs Survey. In June 2013, SAC launched a project to survey and interview judges and court coordinators on behalf of the Accountability Court Funding Committee. The goal was to determine current needs for services and funding in Georgia's state-funded accountability courts. Data analysis found that courts are operating at 85% capacity-in part due to staff and treatment shortages. Offenders attending accountability courts face significant barriers, which may preclude some eligible participants from receiving the assistance they need. Such barriers include a lack of readily accessible transportation, housing, and employment.
Pursuant to the Executive Order issued by the Governor, CJCC, as a Capitol Hill Agency, will be closed on Monday, February 16, 2016. This is in order to alleviate road congestion during the potential inclement weather coming tomorrow. \
