The Top Ten Justice Developments of 2012

The editors of The Crime Report are preparing once again to spotlight the most important developments or innovations in criminal justice in 2012 for our annual year-end review next month, based on nominations from our staff and TCR contributors around the country. With a new addition this year: we’re also naming the person, group or agency judged to have had the most profound impact on the nation’s criminal justice system in 2012. We’d also like to extend the invitation to our readers. A word about what we’re looking for. The developments or innovations you choose can be at the federal or local levels.
