About Us

The Office of Compliance Consultants is a neutral third-party responsible for monitoring the conditions in the New York City jails for a federal judge. Created by the federal courts in the early 1970s, OCC arose out of litigation between the NYC Department of Correction and The Legal Aid Society. OCC monitors the living conditions in the jails and works closely with the Court and the parties to report on the current conditions and to facilitate change. Also see below
