About the IIP


The Institute for Innovation in Prosecution at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (IIP) is dedicated to partnering with prosecutors and the communities they serve to provide a collaborative national platform to consider a new paradigm of prosecution that measures success, not by conviction rates or plea conditions, but based on community-centered standards of safety, equity, and wellness.







Our Work

The Institute for Innovation in Prosecution blends academic rigor and prosecutorial action to form a new generation of thought in the field. As elected officials with great discretion, prosecutors have a unique role to play in ensuring public safety and shaping a more effective justice system. Prosecutors can set the pace for change in the criminal justice system by promoting data-driven strategies, innovative thinking, and disseminating new research.

The IIP utilizes three key tools to achieve our goals:

Practitioner Learning
Action Research
