Justice Counts

Actionable Data to Bolster Public Safety


Technical Implementation Guides

The Justice Counts Technical Implementation Guides—the first of their kind—equip criminal justice agencies with the resources they need to publish data that is both comparable to other agencies nationwide and customized to the realities of their own unique operations. With these guides in hand, criminal justice agencies can begin configuring and sharing the data policymakers need to make critical public safety decisions.

2022 Highlights and What's Ahead

Justice Counts made significant progress in its mission to improve the accessibility and usability of criminal justice data in 2022—the initiative launched to the public, the first tier of metrics was released, the first states and agencies signed on, and more. Visit the Justice Counts: 2022 Highlights and What's Ahead page to learn about these and other highlights and see what's coming up for 2023.
