District Attorney’s Office rolls out ‘data dashboard,’ grants public access to criminal justice data

The Gazette: For the first time, the public now has access to detailed El Paso County and Teller County criminal justice system data in what the 4th Judicial District Attorney Office calls an important step in “building transparency and accountability” with the community.

During a press conference on Tuesday, District Attorney Michael Allen launched the DOA’s Data Dashboard and said it comes at a time of increased public demand for governmental transparency that “has been lacking in the 4th Judicial District.”

The dashboard, found on the DAO’s website, contains four charts that, through “data reporting and visualization,” allow users to view and interpret statistics on total cases filed in the district and filter thousands of case numbers by class, charge, court division, year filed, defendant demographics and more.
