General Session 3: Analytics and the New Orleans Criminal Justice System
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 11, 2022, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Jeff Asher

New Orleans has historically had the dubious distinction of having one of the nation's highest murder rates as well as one of the nation's highest incarceration rates. Efforts to solve both problems have all too frequently relied on anecdote and feeling rather than data and analytics. This presentation will examine new efforts to use data to approach public safety issues in New Orleans using custom data visualizations and dashboards. The presentation will detail both what data is available for evaluating the criminal justice system and the challenges of New Orleans criminal justice data.
