The Crime Report (TCR) is the nation?s only comprehensive news service covering the diverse challenges and issues of 21st century criminal justice in the U.S. and abroad. Staffed by working journalists in New York, Washington and Los Angeles, it is published daily through the year by the Center on Media, Crime and Justice at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. TCR?s prizewinning coverage includes investigative reports by the some of the nation?s most accomplished reporters; analysis, blogs and commentary by leading criminologists, practitioners, law enforcement/corrections professionals, and legal experts; reports on new and cutting-edge research; and daily summaries of the most important criminal justice news, issues and developments covered by the national and international press. It is a collaborative effort by two national organizations that focus on encouraging quality criminal justice reporting: the Center on Media, Crime and Justice, the nation?s leading practice-oriented think tank on crime and justice reporting, and Criminal Justice Journalists, the nation?s only membership organization of crime-beat journalists.

TCR brings the best and most current usable knowledge available from a variety of criminal justice specialties and preoccupations under one roof as a `one-stop shopping? resource.
