Data Powered Change

Ongoing access to Monroe County’s criminal justice data.

Commons is a community-driven data tool that shapes criminal justice policy.


Working with Community Advocates and the District Attorney’s Office

When the public, police, prosecutors, and courts share and trust the same data, those data become the common ground for reform.

The Commons dashboard publishes complex data in a user-friendly format for the public to access. While criminal justice data is historically difficult to capture based on jurisdictional differences and frequent changes in legislation, Commons provides a comprehensive overview of criminal cases and dispositions within the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office. I am proud to offer a transparent look into our data for our entire community.

In Monroe County, NY the Commons Data Portal will provide stakeholders across our community a transparent and credible platform to address complex judicial system issues. Indeed, the verified and actionable data in the Commons is already a trusted basis for meaningful collaboration among community and government parties that have not traditionally worked well together. Importantly, the fact-based Commons Data will be accessible to our entire community. Widely accepted data will build trust in our community.
