In accordance with the requirement of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities, because of the disability, in its services, programs, or activities.
EMPLOYMENT: CJCC does not discriminate because of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations publicized by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under title I of the ADA.
EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION: CJCC will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in CJCC programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: CJCC will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in Criminal Justice Coordinating Council offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
