In addition to the unmatched transparency of regular releases of detailed case-level data, the State's Attorney Foxx and the SAO Data Team seek to make that information accessible and understandable for the community as a whole, without needing advanced technical expertise.
Before the end of State's Attorney Foxx's first year in office, the SAO released a Baseline Data Report — the first of its kind issued by the Office — offering an overview of 2016 criminal prosecutions data in Cook County. Continuing to raise the bar, the SAO has published the dynamic dashboard below showing how the office is handling felony cases from initiations to sentencing.
This public data dashboard was produced with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation as part of the Safety and Justice Challenge.
