The John Jay Research and Evaluation Center (JohnJayREC) is an applied research organization at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. Since 2010, the Center has managed projects with budgets totaling $40 Million.

With a full-time staff between 10 and 15 and often 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.

JohnJayREC is a member of the Inter-University Network of Criminal Justice Research Centers (INCJRC).
