Crime and Delinquency Council Issues Annual Media Awards


The National Council on Crime and Delinquency announced winners of its annual Prevention for a Safer Society (PASS) awards to print and broadcast journalists, TV news and feature reporters, producers, writers, and those in film and literature “who focus America's attention on our criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and adult protection systems in a thoughtful and considerate manner.”

The council says it seeks stories “that illustrate current realities or the promise of reform, especially those that help people understand the complex issues surrounding the nation's social systems.” Council president Alexander Busansky said, “With the national dialogue on the Trayvon Martin case, we have all witnessed the power of the media to shine a light on issues of justice.” He added that the PASS awards “recognize those who skillfully bring home to us the critical issues that affect justice and safety in our nation.” Click on the link to see the list of award winners.
