Our founder, Jeremy Travis, was asked to present at the New York Law School City Law Lecture Series on March 8, 2019. Jeremy presented on trends in the New York City criminal justice system over the past 30 years. The presentation, Trends in Crime and Justice: Reflections on the New York City Story, 1980-2017, emphasized Five Realities: Low Crime Rates; Low Enforcement Rates; Low Incarceration and Supervision Rates; and The Consequences of Drug Enforcement.
The Data Collaborative for Justice, in particular Quinn Hood, Data Analyst, assisted Jeremy by providing the data and helping with the presentation.
The event had an excellent turn out and the audience appreciated receiving a comprehensive view of the trends in the different components of the criminal justice system. It was a true representation of the New York City story!
