Coalition to Raise the Minimum Standards at NYC Jails

Print Friendly and PDF

Coalition to Raise the Minimum Standards at NYC Jails was formed after the Board of Corrections first published proposed standards revisions in January 2007, which would dramatically undermine the rights of those languishing in NYC jails. The Board of Corrections, established in 1957, monitors New York City’s jails, makes recommendations for better practices and establishes the minimum standards, or basic rules, by which all NYC jails should comply.

The Coalition is actively working to fight this current rollback of rights and instead demand that the Board of Corrections raise its minimum standards for conduct in protecting and promoting the rights of people in NYC’s jails.

CCR is an active member of the Coalition to Raise the Minimum Standards at NYC Jails.
