FIU and Loyola University Chicago are hosting the third national meeting of prosecutors, policy experts and researchers in Miami, on March 14, 2019. The meeting is organized as part of the Data Informed Prosecution Project.
The Hillsborough State Attorney's Office is one of four prosecutors' offices nationwide to participate in a two-year academic study focused on improving prosecutorial practices.
This report presents the results of 78 interviews and 275 surveys completed with prosecutors in Jacksonville, FL, Chicago, IL, Tampa, FL, and Milwaukee, WI. It is the first in a series of reports of the national project focusing on advancing prosecutorial effectiveness and fairness funded by the MacArthur Foundation.
For years, criminal justice reformers have been preaching a message that no one wields more power in America than prosecutors. Yet as reform-preaching candidates have ousted incumbents, the public has lacked access to the kind of metrics that would track the fairness and effectiveness of prosecutors.
