Lake County State’s Attorney's Office Launches Public Data Dashboard

(Lake County, IL) – Fulfilling a day-one commitment, Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart announced that his office has developed a new data dashboard. The site, which launched Thursday, will allow the public to explore data trends within the State’s Attorney’s Office and the criminal justice system of Lake County. 

For the first time in its history, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s office is becoming proactive in collecting and publishing data, which will allow for a better understanding of the criminal justice system process and expose possible inequities and inefficiencies. 

The dashboard was developed with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation through the office’s participation in the Safety and Justice Challenge, with additional support coming from the Center for Criminal Justice Research, Policy, and Practice at Loyola University Chicago. 

“I’m excited to launch the first ever public data dashboard from the State’s Attorney’s office. We are committed to building and using the data infrastructure needed now, and in the decades to come, to make sure we do our jobs to the best of our ability.  

“This dashboard is a critical part of that data infrastructure as well as our dedication to be a transparent, accountable, and fair prosecutor’s office,” said State’s Attorney Rinehart. 

Data currently available includes criminal case filings, arrest and charging information, jail admissions, and employee demographics of the State’s Attorney’s office. 

The Lake County State’s Attorney data dashboard will be updated and expanded as additional data becomes available. The dashboard can be accessed online at
