Policymakers are often forced to make critical decisions about the safety of their constituents using limited or stale criminal justice data. But access to clean, updated data is essential to charting a path to safer, more equitable communities. This national event explored the significant shortcomings of data in the criminal justice system and introduced a bold solution comprising an unprecedented coalition of partners committed to creating a stronger information infrastructure for the justice system: Justice Counts. Justice Counts is a consensus-building initiative of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance led by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center to help criminal justice policymakers across the country make better decisions with data that’s more timely, less disjointed, and as useful as possible.
