Modernizing AND REFORMING OUR Criminal Code

D.C. deserves a criminal code of its own making. After years of careful research and stakeholder engagement, a team of advisors unanimously voted to send the Revised Criminal Code Act to the D.C. Council last year. It provides for greater predictability, transparency, and fairness in District criminal laws.


On March 31, 2021, the Criminal Code Reform Commission transmitted the Revised Criminal Code to the D.C. Council.
