is partnering with another Center for Court Innovation project, NYC Community Clean Up, to expand our community service in addition to our partnerships with the NYCHA and the Parks Department. Community Service is an alternative sanction for an offender that has been used as part of our restorative justice model since we opened. By mandating offenders to restore the community, the Justice Center makes justice more visible to local residents and acknowledges that communities can be victims just like individuals. Restitution projects include painting over graffiti, sweeping the streets and cleaning the Justice Center , and occur mostly in Justice Center Southwest Brooklyn. During the first half of this year alone, offenders completed at least 2,520 hours of community service, contributing at least $18,270 worth of labor to Southwest, Brooklyn.
If you interested in having our community service address a neighborhood eyesore, especially one that is leading to criminal or delinquent activity please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
