Criminal Justice Matters

Since the fall of 2011, The Center on Media, Crime and Justice has been produced the long-running monthly CUNY-TV public television show called “Criminal Justice Matters,” aimed at New Yorkers and taped at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. With Stephen Handelman’s guidance, CMCJ is reinventing Criminal Justice Matters as a criminal justice “newsmagazine”—the only one in the New York area—with interviews with prominent leaders in the field of justice and politics, and producing visuals oriented towards emerging criminal justice topics. Criminal Justice Matters has produced shows dedicated to the school- to- prison pipeline, school security, white-collar crime, and how social media is impacting the criminal justice field among others.
