Center on Media, Crime and Justice


The Center on Media, Crime and Justice, housed at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY) since 2006, is the nation's only practice- and research-oriented think tank devoted to encouraging and developing high-quality reporting on criminal justice, and to promoting better-informed public debate on the complex 21st-century challenges of law enforcement, public security and justice in a globalized urban society.

The Center provides a non-partisan forum for discussion, networking and information-sharing between the media and the criminal justice community both in the U.S. and abroad, including academics, practitioners and non-government organizations. We offer seminars, training workshops and courses, conferences, specialized research and fellowships for media students, professionals and editors working in print, broadcast, magazine and online. We provide a key link between cutting-edge research and best practices in the field and the media community. Activities include: sponsorship of the annual John Jay Prize for Excellence in Criminal Justice Reporting, and an annual survey of major crime stories and coverage.
