The New England Council on Crime and Delinquency (NECCD) is made up of affiliates from the six New England States, run solely by volunteer professionals in the areas of Corrections, Probation and Parole, Juvenile Justice and Law Enforcement. All levels of government, to include state, local and county agencies are counted amongst its membership.
Founded in 1938, NECCD has grown to become host of one of the top training institutes in the New England region, rotating to a different New England State each year. NECCD strives to bring current trends, topics and technology to the forefront of the criminal and juvenile justice professions with their training institute while offering opportunities for interagency networking and best practice models from across the country.
NECCD is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
The New England Council on Crime and Delinquency is committed to community safety through realistic and effective programming for crime and delinquency prevention, offender rehabilitation and reintegration.
