Founded in 1978 by concerned members of the business community, the Citizens Crime Commission of New York City has been a leader in converting ideas that address crime and protect the economic and social viability of New York City into action for over 30 years. One of the commission's first ideas to be put into action was a plan to make the criminal justice system more effective as a means to reduce street crime that plagued New York City during the 1980s and 90s. As the criminal justice landscape of New York City has changed, the Crime Commission's work has evolved with it. By issuing reports, holding forums, providing commentary to national and local media, and creating innovative projects, the commission has continued to generate new ideas and convert them into action.
