Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ)

Description

The Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice (MOCJ) houses the Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator (CJC), established pursuant to Section 13 of the City Charter and facilitates cooperation and partnerships among the agencies and actors involved in crime-fighting and criminal justice in New York City. MOCJ also houses the Office to Prevent Gun Violence, the Justice Implementation Task Force, the Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety, the Mayor’s Task Force on Behavioral Health and the Criminal Justice System, the Domestic Violence Task Force (in partnership with the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence), and the Division of Transitional Services. MOCJ advises the Mayor on the City's public safety strategy and, together with partners inside and outside government, develops and implements policies aimed at achieving three main goals: reducing crime, reducing unnecessary arrests and incarceration and promoting fairness. Additionally, MOCJ serves as a liaison between the NYPD, the Departments of Correction and Probation, the five District Attorney's Offices, and other agencies to help coordinate consistent citywide policy on criminal justice issues.
