ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia’s Criminal Justice Coordinating council has been given more than $4.5 million in grants to continue running a variety of criminal justice programs.

Officials said Monday the CJCC agencies, including the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Office for Victims of Crime the Office on Violence Against Women and others were given eight federal grants which Gov. Deal says will help both victims and criminals get treatment.

CJCC Director Jaqueline Bunn says the grants will improve Georgia’s criminal justice system and help officials align data systems between agencies.
