Criminal justice is primarily a local issue, governed by state and local laws that are carried out by local authorities. That’s why The Marshall Project has begun building newsrooms that cover local criminal justice issues for a local audience. Without this kind of investigative journalism, important institutions like law enforcement, district attorneys, judges, and prisons and jails will go unmonitored, unexamined, and potentially unrestrained.
We’ve found that partnerships with local news outlets can have an impact in local communities, where a lack of resources for deeply investigated and data-driven stories makes our journalism especially valuable.
