Red Hook Community Justice Center


Multi-Jurisdictional Community Court, James Brodick- Project Coordinator
88 Visitation Place
Brooklyn, NY, 11231

The Red Hook Community Justice Center is the nation's first multi-jurisdictional community court. Operating out of a refurbished Catholic school in the heart of a low-income Brooklyn neighborhood, the Justice Center seeks to solve neighborhood problems like drugs, crime, domestic violence and landlord-tenant disputes. At Red Hook, a single judge hears neighborhood cases that under ordinary circumstances would go to three different courtsóCivil, Family and Criminal. The goal is to offer a coordinated, rather than piecemeal, approach to people's problems. The Red Hook judge has an array of sanctions and services at his disposal, including community restitution projects, on-site educational workshops and GED classes, drug treatment and mental health counselingóall rigorously monitored to ensure accountability and drive home notions of individual responsibility.
