The Problem

No one really knows how well our entire criminal justice system is working on the county level.

The Solution

Measures for Justice gathers criminal justice data at the county level and uses them to populate performance Measures that address:

  • Public Safety
  • Fair Process
  • Fiscal Responsibility

The Measures track how criminal cases are being handled at the county level from arrest to post-conviction. They are designed to increase the transparency of local justice systems and enable more informed discussions.
