Kellner and King: New data will allow the public to analyze how their DA is doing

The Denver Post: Transparency is the core of public trust, and that trust must be earned. For the past year, we led a bipartisan group of eight district attorneys to dramatically increase transparency about how criminal justice works in our state and to shed light on our part in it.

The result: new public websites giving unprecedented insight into the decisions and practices in our offices based on data.

The information is now fully accessible and consumable online and is visible to our offices, colleagues, communities, and policymakers. The data dashboards remain a work in progress — no dataset is perfect. We bring this data forward not just for the benefit of our offices but to commit to engaging in important conversations that are not derailed by anecdotal information from any side.
