Prosecutorial Performance Indicators (PPIs)

CAJ team works with jurisdictions across the country to advance prosecutorial effectiveness and fairness through the development of prosecutorial performance indicators

FIU, in partnership with Loyola University Chicago, is implementing a multi-year project with several prosecutor’s offices in locations including Chicago, Jacksonville, Milwaukee, Tampa, Philadelphia, and Charleston. The project stems from a growing recognition that prosecutors need to become more data-driven and strategic. The project will help prosecutors improve data and analytical capacity, develop and implement new performance indicators to assess progress over time, and respond to the need to ameliorate racial and ethnic disparities in the justice system. The project is funded by the MacArthur Foundation.
