TCR Will Soon Launch a ‘Metered’ Subscription


Dear TCR Reader,

Starting November 11, The Crime Report and our daily e-mail update will only be available through a paid subscription. Based on your feedback, we are offering monthly and yearly pricing plans that we believe you’ll find excellent bargains—and we're also pleased to offer some special discount packages.

  • A first-month trial subscription of 99 cents entitles you to unlimited access to TCR and to uninterrupted access to our daily (MondayFriday) e-mail updates on criminal justice news and research from across the country and around the world. Monthly subscriptions (after the first trial month) will cost $4.95.
  • We are also offering an introductory annual charter subscription of $24.95 to subscribers who sign up now, or within two weeks of the launch of our new “metered” subscription model.
  • After November 25, annual subscriptions will cost $49.95. (That’s 96 cents a week!) Special annual discounts for students, faculty, journalists—and bulk subscriptions—are available. See below.

PLEASE NOTE: After Nov. 11, if you’re not ready to subscribe, you will only have access to five articles each month, and will not receive our daily email update.

As many of you know, The Crime Report is a non-profit site—largely supported through donations and grants since it was launched four years ago. But we cannot depend on one source of revenue alone in order to continue providing (and expanding) the services you’ve come to expect: daily digests of criminal justice news and research, commentary from leading figures in the field, and our award-winning original reporting available nowhere else.

You may also qualify for special discounts:

  • Students and faculty (who do not sign up for the annual introductory trial subscription after Nov. 25) will be entitled to a 20 per cent discount off our annual rate ($39.95).
  • Special annual rates are also available to journalists; and we are offering bulk discounts to libraries and other institutions.

For more information on rates and discounts, please contact us at: []

A further note: certain sections of our site will continue to be open for unlimited access, including the Job Board, our Events Calendar and our conference and resource pages. Non-subscribers on our mailing list will continue to receive our weekly email alert highlighting the TCR’s main stories and features.

If you agree that it has never been more important to have comprehensive, in-depth, non-partisan (and non-sensational) reporting about the criminal justice challenges of our time, I hope you’ll join us in our mission to maintain and grow The Crime Report’s unique service to students, researchers, journalists, and to the entire criminal justice community.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Handelman
Executive Editor
The Crime Report
