No knock warrants January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022
(New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, 2023) New Jersey Office of the Attorney General
AG Directive 2021-12 required all New Jersey law enforcement agencies to track applications for “No Knock Warrants” and provide an annual summary of those applications to the Attorney General. Agencies were required to send this information directly to their County Prosecutor (hereafter “CPO”). In turn, the CPOs were required to report whether any agency within their jurisdiction submitted any applications for no knock warrants to the Office of the Attorney General. Agencies reporting applications for no knock warrants were then required to submit counts of: • # of applications for “No Knock” provisions applied for to the court • # of applications for “No Knock” provisions approved by a court • # of No Knock entries justified by exigent circumstances This report details the volume of no knock warrants for the reporting period of January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, the first full year reporting period since the Directive.

Criminal justice case processing arrest through disposition New York state January - December 2022
(New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, 2023-05) New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services
This report details how felony cases are processed in New York State's superior courts (Criminal Procedure Law 10.10 and 10.20) and its publication fulfils the statutory reporting requirements outlined in Section 837-a of Executive Law requiring the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) to collect and analyze statistical information on felony indictments, superior court informations (SCI) and the dispositions of felony cases. Information about the processing of these felony cases is presented for New York State and its two regions: New York City and the Rest of State (the 57 counties outside of the five boroughs). Arrest and arraignment statistics also are included for the entire state and each region. Individual county specific reports are provided to each District Attorney's office, the New York City Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor (OSNP), and the Office of the Attorney General, and are available to the public upon request. The data included in this report is derived from New York State's criminal history records database, which is maintained by DCJS and is known as the Computerized Criminal History (CCH) system. CCH includes information about adult arrests for offenses that require fingerprints to be taken (Criminal Procedure Law 160.10). Misdemeanor arrests involving youth ranging in age from 13 to 17 are not included where the arrest does not require fingerprints to be taken by the arresting agency. Arrest information is submitted to DCJS by police agencies as part of the fingerprint transaction and disposition information is electronically transmitted to DCJS by the Office of Court Administration.

(Justice Information Resource Network, 2023-06) Justice Information Resource Network
The Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to the use of nonpartisan research and analysis to inform criminal and juvenile justice decision making. We are comprised of a network of researchers and practitioners throughout government, academia, and the justice community. At the core of this network are state Statistical Analysis Centers (SACs), which are units or agencies at the state level that use information from all components of the criminal justice system to conduct objective analyses informing policy and practice at the state and local levels. While most SACs are housed within their State Administering Agency (SAA), the location of SAAs varies from state to state. Of the SACs located outside of government agencies, all but one are located within academic institutions. The remaining SAC is a registered non-profit public benefit corporation. The SAC Publication Digest is a comprehensive collection of abstracts of state Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) reports, including reports produced for the SACs by outside authors or organizations. The Digest briefly describes the publications published by each SAC during this period and covers a wide array of justice topics and analysis approaches not available from any other source. The Digest is a resource for anyone concerned with understanding the current major justice issues as well as the administration of justice in the states.
