The core of CJA’s work is interviewing all arrested defendants who come before the New York City courts. CJA conducts approximately 250,000 pre-arraignment interviews to determine the likelihood that individual defendants will return to court and uses this assessment to make recommendations to the court regarding eligibility for Release on Recognizance (ROR). Supported by statistical research, CJA’s assessments are a strong predictor of which individuals are more likely to appear in court for follow-up hearings. These assessments are shared with all parties during the arraignment proceeding.
CJA employs approximately 240 employees city-wide, operating from approximately 12 worksites within the 5 boroughs. CJA occupies worksites in a variety of mix spaced environments including shared office spaces located in city buildings, court houses, detention facilities and private commercial spaces.
