Crime & Justice News Begins Its Fifth Year


Crime & Justice News begins its fifth year today. During the last four years, we have produced more than 12,300 summaries of important crime and justice stories nationwide, with links to original material. The service, run by the national organization Criminal Justice Journalists, was started with a grant from the Butler Family Fund. Since 2005, we have been funded by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. We appreciate John Jay’s continued support.

CJN’s archives of stories is searchable by any reader. Just go to our Web site,, and enter as a guest on the left of the home page. We appreciate story ideas from readers. Our current limit of 12 stories daily in our e-mail version means that we cannot cover everything, but we aim to keep readers up to date on major trends in crime, policing, courts, corrections, and other criminal justice issues. Journalist readers can support Criminal Justice Journalists by joining; see for details.
