The Center for Court Innovation is a non-profit organization that works to create a more effective and humane justice system by performing original research and helping launch reforms by guiding justice innovators, nationally and internationally. The Center creates operating projects that have been documented to reduce the use of jail and prison, assist victims of crime, and strengthen communities.
Neighborhood Safety Initiatives (NSI;initiative), a program of the Center underway since 2015 and led by the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice, is a comprehensive strategy to enhance public safety and strengthen community well-being in 15 public housing developments across New York City. The initiative aims to enhance safety and overall quality of life by strengthening collaboration and capacity among public housing residents. Since 2016, citywide meetings have been convened to share information and data, facilitate community engagement to identify neighborhood priorities, enhance the quality of life and spur collaboration and accountability among city agencies and local stakeholders.
A primary component of the program, NeighborhoodStat (NSTAT), aims to enhance safety and overall quality of life by strengthening collaboration and capacity among NYCHA residents. NSI works to advance the NSTAT process by assisting each of 15 designated communities to convene local stakeholder groups. NSTAT Stakeholder teams activities include collaboratively identifying community conditions, prioritizing local initiatives, accessing and analyzing data, identifying and leveraging resources, improving resident capacity through trainings; and implementing participatory placekeeping projects and policy recommendations. These placemaking projects and policy recommendations address structural racism, local concerns and enhance public safety, reduces victimization, promoting healing and improves well-being. The initiative’s overarching goal is to build community agency in policy change within a social, racial and spatial justice framework.
