Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Crime Commission played a significant role in developing the crime-fighting policies that led to New York's historic recent reduction in crime. More recently, the commission has successfully supported the greater use of DNA evidence in crime fighting, expanded opportunities for at-risk youth, developed interventions against gun violence and highlighted the changing nature of the threat of terrorism. Today, the Crime Commission focuses its work around illegal gun crime, juvenile crime, counter-terrorism, and crime prevention strategies.
