December 13, 2017The Future of NYC Jails—Closing Rikers Island and Beyond
New York City is at a pivotal moment, with the opportunity to change its approach to correctional facilities. There is consensus among the community, stakeholders, and political bodies that the Rikers Island Jail complex is a jail of the past and not appropriate for today’s changing jail population and criminal justice philosophy. With growing support to close Rikers Island, the future of NYC jails must encompass a holistic and humane approach to the larger justice system in order to accommodate the current and future inmate population with a focus on best practices and modern, state-of-the-art justice facilities.
