The John Jay Research and Evaluation Center (JohnJayREC) is an applied research organization at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. With a full-time staff of 16 as well as six to ten faculty members and graduate students, we work to meet the research needs of justice practitioners and policymakers in New York City, New York State, and the nation. We take on projects supported by grants, contracts, and even the occasional consulting agreement. Since 2010, the Center has managed projects with budgets totaling $30 Million.
