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 between 10 and 15 and often several faculty members and graduate students, we work to meet the research needs of practitioners, policymakers, and community members in New York City, New York State, and the nation. We take on projects supported by grants, contracts, and even the occasional consulting agreement.
