DOJ Launches New Incident-Level Criminal Justice Data Dashboards
August 13, 2020
MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Josh Kaul today announced that the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched new data dashboards that offer incident-level crime data about clearances, firearm involvement, drug activity, victims and offenders, and more. View the dashboards here.
“Providing access to incident-level criminal justice data increases transparency. This information can be used to evaluate how the justice system in Wisconsin is working and how we can make our justice system more equitable and enhance public safety,” said Attorney General Kaul.
WIBRS certified agencies currently cover approximately 70% of the state’s population. The new dashboard offers users the ability to explore which agencies are reporting data through WIBRS, what year the agency transitioned to WIBRS, and to browse WIBRS data based on topic on an agency-by-agency basis. Detailed methodology notes are also included, along with information on how to request more data.
Data is provided by law enforcement. The data can be utilized by researchers, policy makers, criminal justice agencies, and the community to understand trends in reported crime and arrest data by type and geographic area.
The dashboard was developed by the DOJ Bureau of Justice Information and Analysis (BJIA), which works to inform criminal justice policy and practice by conducting objective research, analysis, and evaluation of information.
Additional data dashboards are also available:
- UCR Arrest Data
- UCR Arrest Demographics
- UCR Offense Data
- UCR Offense and Arrest Data by Agency
- UCR Sex Offense Data
