Clinical Coordinator, Pre-Trial Services

The Center for Court Innovation is a non-profit dedicated to creating a more humane and effective justice system. We operate at the cutting edge of criminal justice reform in the New York area by developing, planning, launching, and managing large-scale projects that serve thousands of justice-involved people each year. Our projects have been documented to reduce the use of incarceration and conviction, while improving public safety and increasing public confidence in government. Our goal is to create a criminal justice system that offers meaningful and proportionate outcomes, that treats everyone with dignity and respect, and that strengthens communities and supports victims.

Operating out of Bronx County Criminal Court, Bronx Community Solutions (BCS) offers criminal justice programming in the areas of pretrial diversion programming thru regular monitoring and referral services to misdemeanor and non-violent felony defendants whose cases are pending; and alternative to Incarceration programming for non-violent crimes by providing additional sentencing options for non-violent offenders. These programs reduce the reliance on pre-trial detention and short-term jail sentences and offers defendants the assistance they need to avoid further criminal conduct.
