The Institute for Criminal Justice Ethics, the only nonprofit, university-based center of its kind in the United States, was established to foster greater concern for ethical issues among practitioners and scholars in the criminal justice field. It seeks to encourage increased sensitivity to the demands of ethical behavior among those who administer and enforce our system of criminal justice, a more focused treatment of moral issues in the education of criminal justice professionals, and a new dialogue among scholars and practitioners on specific topics in criminal justice ethics.

The Criminal Justice Ethics  journal, now published by Routledge, is housed here at John Jay with the Institute for Criminal Justice Ethics. Professor Jonathan Jacobs is Director of the Institute and serves as the editor.
