City Criminal Justice Agency (CJA) is a private, non-profit
corporation providing pre-trial release services in New York
City's Criminal Courts.
providing information on a defendant's likelihood of returning
to court, CJA helps arraignment judges make more informed release
decisions and fosters the use of release on recognizance.
CJA's work is vital in saving New York City unnecessary pretrial
detention and post-sentence incarceration costs, in reducing
the rate of failure to appear in court, in providing data and
research to enhance the understanding of the criminal-justice
system, and in improving the management of the city's alternative-to-incarceration
