Project Abstract

The Colorado Lab and the Prosecutorial Performance Indicators are working with judicial districts across Colorado to develop data dashboards to assist District Attorneys’ offices with tracking progress toward greater efficiency, effectiveness, and fairness. During Phase One, we worked with eight prosecutors’ offices to pilot the implementation of the indicators, create data dashboards, conduct in-depth analyses of racial/ethnic disparities, and support offices in using data to drive practice. During Phase Two, we are working with five additional offices and developing the tools and infrastructure to scale use of the dashboards statewide.
