Bronx Community Solutions provides the courts with increased sentencing options for low-level offenses such as drug possession, shop lifting, and prostitution.
By combining punishment with help, Bronx Community Solutions aims to hold offenders accountable for their offenses, payback crime-plagued Bronx communities, and help offenders avoid further criminal behavior.
Inside the newsletter, attached to the right of this story, you will be able to read about many of the new initiatives Bronx Community Solutions launched in 2009 (such as assisting the court with DWI/DUI offenders and placing a greater emphasis on helping offenders with mental health issues). Also contained in the newsletter are updates on Bronx Community Solutions’ efforts at revitalizing areas around the Bronx, a story about bridging the gap between the youth and the NYPD, and much more.
