Last year, our Bureau of Justice Assistance funded a new effort called "Reimagining Justice," a phrase that captures exactly what we're trying to achieve. Through a grant to the Newark Public Safety Collaborative, based out of Rutgers University, we are supporting an effort to test new community safety strategies that complement traditional enforcement measures. The mission is to put data and research into the hands of community stakeholders so they can be part of the design and development of community safety solutions.
