Evaluating the Impact of New York City’s Criminal Justice Reform Act

In this report, using data from the Office of Court Administration (OCA) and OATH, we analyzed summonses issued by the New York City Police Department for CJRA offenses. First, we present issuance over time and then provide a projected estimate of criminal summonses and associated warrants that would have been issued had the CJRA not gone into effect. Second, we examine criminal and civil summons issuance by offense type, demographics, borough, and precincts. Third, we examine outcomes including dispositions for criminal and civil summonses and warrants related to non-appearance for criminal summonses. Lastly, we examine community service utilization by offense type and demographics.
