What Is a Community Court?: How the Model Is Being Adapted Across the United States
Julius Lang (au)
The Midtown Community Court was created in 1993 to respond more effectively to street prostitution, vandalism, shoplifting, drug possession, and other quality-of-life offenses that had tarnished midtown Manhattanäó»s reputation as a capital of tourism and entertainment. Researchers subsequently documented that the Midtown Community Courtäó»s approach äóî combining punishment and help by linking defendants to community restitution projects and on-site social services äóî made a difference, helping to reduce crime and improve public trust in justice. Since then, some three dozen community courts have opened in the U.S., and many others are operating abroad. Designed to address local concerns, these courts handle a wide range of issues äóî everything from quality-of-life crimes, truant youth, and landlord-tenant conflicts, to drug addiction, chronic homelessness, and sex trafficking. This pub. offers a short review of community courts in the U.S. The goal is to help innovators learn about community courts and decide whether the model might help them achieve the goal of a fair and effective justice system that enhances safety, supports victims, and protects our rights. This is a print on demand report.
