The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has created and launched a new data dashboard on its website.
The dashboard is located under the “About” section and contains information about cases for calendar years 2017, 2018, and 2019. It can be exported and viewed in various formats and is updated every seven days, so information related to those cases remain current, according to a release.
“If we are to enact meaningful reforms in the criminal justice system, it is important that we understand what is submitted to this office and then filed as it relates to criminal charges in this community,” County Attorney Allister Adel stated in the release. “This dashboard supports my vision for a more transparent process, and the importance of data-driven decision making.”
The information contained in the dashboard includes:

How MCAO disposed, or handled, the case:
Types of offenses
Race and gender as submitted by law enforcement
