What’s New

February 2009

In February 2009, Criminal Justice Journalists, in association with the John Jay College Center on Media, Crime and Justice, launched The Crime Report at http://thecrimereport.org. A new version of the site was launched in July 2016.

The Crime Report is a unique news and multimedia information and networking resource for the changing contemporary world of crime and justice.  Designed for those who want to probe beyond the daily crime headlines and political rhetoric, it is the nation’s only comprehensive guide to all facets of the criminal justice system.

The Crime Report (TCR) is independent and non-partisan, and it advances no single view or approach – except to promote informed discussion and debate. It is a collaborative effort by two national organizations that focus on encouraging quality criminal justice reporting:  The  Center on Media, Crime and Justice, the nation’s leading practice-oriented think tank on crime and justice reporting and Criminal Justice Journalists, the nation’s only membership organization of crime-beat journalists.
