At the District level, JLOS is represented by the JLOS District Chain Linked Committee. This role is vital to SDP V implementation.  DCCs are responsible for joint planning, supervising, monitoring and evaluation of performance against set targets.   The DCCs are the frontline of JLOS management, and their effectiveness has the most influence on the effectiveness of the JLOS SIP V primary outputs and impact. DCCs are responsible for rallying all district based JLOS and non-JLOS resources towards the attainment of JLOS targets individually in their respective institutions and as a collective. Detailed roles of the DCCs will be spelt out in the Management Policy. Resources have been allocated to improve the governance; management systems and introduction of DCCs to results-based management systems and to ensure that DCCs have full knowledge of the JLOS SDP, annual and quarterly targets. 

The DCC comprises of the following representatives:

  1. JLOS institutional representatives at the district level
  2. Representatives of the legal profession
  3. District Probation and Social Welfare Officers.
  4. Relevant CSOs, Faith-based organizations and community structures engaged in advancing justice law and order in the district.
  5. The Local government representatives
  6. Nominated members of the public.

The DCC is chaired by the most senior judicial officer in the district and meets monthly. The DCC has two reporting lines. One is to the Advisory Board through the RCC and the other to the JLOS Technical Committee through the JLOS Secretariat. The DCCs report on a quarterly basis to the Technical Committee and monthly to their respective institutions. The Technical Committee reserves one meeting in every quarter to discuss reports of the DCCs. Regional implementation reviews complement sector secretariat feedback to the DCCs.
