Most recently, students have worked closely with the staff of the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice in New York City to provide research and recommendations on three projects: 1) a review of national best practices for policing and adjudicating low-level crime, 2) building an effective approach to combating domestic violence and 3) developing “legitimacy indicators” that will feed into the new NYC “Neighborhood Stat Meter,” a tool that will be used to capture resident concerns and perceptions and other critical data to help stakeholders surface issues that impact the community’s sense of safety and identify actionable solutions.
