Criminal Justice Journalists

Criminal Justice Journalists, a non-profit, member supported organization was founded in 1997. Our goal is to improve the quality and accuracy of news reporting on crime, law enforcement, and the judicial system. In January 2001, CJJ affiliated with the Jerry Lee Center of Criminology of the University of Pennsylvania. The center was founded by Jerry Lee, president of WBEB-FM in Philadelphia, and is headed by criminologist Lawrence W. Sherman.
