Judge Calabrese’s alma matter with a piece on The Justice Center’s impressive work.
…Red Hook saw the largest drop in major crimes in the city in 2006 and 2007.
The Red Hook Community Justice Center is increasingly being looked at as a model of justice working for a neighborhood and the people that live in it. As the first multi-jurisdictional community court in the country, it’s faced high expectations and continually impressed those in- and outside of Red Hook.
Stay tuned for more news from the Justice Center mid-April, as they recognize some of the rising stars in the community’s youth. Details to come.
