YT spent a week in New York City recently. In that time, we made a number of news items that related themes that were prevalent in Thurrock with those in New York.
We visited the Red Hook Community Justice Center, which has become famous throughout the world for tis use of restorative justice.
We spoke to deputy project director Jessica Colon about the work of the centre, its successes to date, its challenges and the future.
With Red Hook serving over 200,000 resident, we asked what a similar sized area such as Thurrock could learn from the Red Hook experience.
YT would like to thank Chris Watler for facilitating the interview.
