New NYC Corrections Commissioner Appointed

Dr. Doar Schriro takes over the reins from Martin Horn. Commissioner Horn worked to create the Rikers Island Discharge Collaborative, among his many innovations. Dr. Schriro has a long resume leading prison & jail systems. Thanks to our friends at the David Rothenberg Center for Public Policy for bringing this to our attention.
