At Measures for Justice (MFJ), we have pioneered a new way to use data to measure criminal justice system performance in America. We collect, clean, code, and analyze county-level data to provide information on the whole system from arrest to post-conviction, on a county-by-county basis. We are on the cutting edge of research and technology, have challenged the status quo nationally, and have become a groundbreaker in the field of criminal justice performance measurement.
