ST. LOUIS, MO — Karpel Foundation is helping to empower communities to a more equitable justice system by offering data-driven dashboards at no charge to offices using the PROSECUTORbyKarpel case management system now in use by 700 county prosecutorâ€™s offices nationwide.
The dashboards, supported by Microsoft, enable the public to see how their county compares with others across a range of metrics designed to deliver key insights related to recidivism rates, confinement rates, and more to foster accountability within their local justice system. To date the dashboards are in use in 10 offices across three states, including California, Missouri and Oregon.
â€œOur goal is to help the public judge how their local judicial system compares to others and at the same time, cut the time and cost of prosecution,â€ said Jeff Karpel, Founder of the Karpel Foundation. â€œThe support of Microsoft will help us build on our mission to promote transparency and accountability through data-driven innovation.â€
Jeannine Pacioni – District Attorney Monterey California added, â€œThe Karpel Foundation dashboard is a valuable tool for any prosecutorâ€™s office. Integrated with our case management system, it instantly allows us to see trends from 2016 to present for many vital measures. Data is critical to effectively communicate about the prosecutorâ€™s role in the criminal justice system. I use the dashboard to highlight to my constituents and our board of supervisors the important work we do and its impact on our community.â€
â€œThe District Attorneyâ€™s Office made public current and historic statistics on the Mariposa County website. These statistics will automatically update throughout the year to display the most up to date data,â€ said Walter W. Wall, District Attorney Mariposa County. â€œThe statistics are provided by a partnership with Measures for Justice. In an effort to increase transparency within the justice system, the District Attorneyâ€™s Office has elected to share these statistics with the public to increase awareness and understanding. The District Attorneyâ€™s Office thanks Karpel Solutions for making this a possibility.â€
The PROSECUTORbyKarpel case management system has grown to be the largest criminal case management software in America. Included is person centric case management, case information and video evidence integration. The system can also automate case assignments, assign cases based on workload, monitor charging decisions, and features internal and external dashboards.
