MJP – Phase I

Misdemeanor Justice Project (MJP) – Phase I sought to conduct research and disseminate information about lower-level criminal offenses (misdemeanors, summonses, and violations) in New York State and New York City. With this information, we informed the local dialogue on the enforcement of lower-level offenses. To date, the MJP has been successful in providing evidence that has been critical to shaping criminal justice policy reform in New York City.
