Participation in Illinois

In June 2022, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) applied to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance requesting funding and technical assistance to implement Justice Counts in Illinois. As stated in Illinois’s grant application, ICJIA is using Justice Counts to “create a new vision for public data dissemination.”

What Leaders in Illinois Are Saying

“In Illinois, there is no centralized source of data that can, in the aggregate, provide a statewide picture and reside in local agencies without a systematic effort to collect statewide data. My agency (ICJIA) serves a unique role in state government. We house a research unit that acts as a centralized source for statewide justice system data. In this role, we are exposed to the challenges of making statewide data publicly available. ICJIA will leverage the Justice Counts initiative to offer Illinois a motive and framework for unified justice system data across all sectors by working with the agencies in the other sectors to collate data that is currently being collected statewide and facilitate processes for collecting metrics that either reside locally or are not collected at all…”
