About the Data - CJDT

FDLE does not warrant that the records provided here are comprehensive or complete; only that they contain information received from the reporting entities. Errors and/or omissions brought to the attention of FDLE will be investigated and corrected as necessary.

As part of Criminal Justice Data Transparency (CJDT) initiative, FDLE collects person-based data for each individual that came into contact with the criminal justice system (e.g., was arrested, prosecuted, and/or incarcerated).

The person-based CJDT data includes only adult and treat-as-adult records, and contains no personal identifying information. The records are linked by a unique identifier created for each criminal case to ensure every subject of the case is the same for all information related to that person at any time.

Additionally, FDLE collects administrative data elements from contributor agencies that reflect their workload, staffing, and cost of doing business. Administrative reports vary in frequency and can represent numbers by the day, week, month, or year.

The CJDT data is accessible through interactive dashboards that allow users to filter information based on their interest (e.g., by county, year, final disposition, etc.) The data is also available for download as a filtered dataset directly from the dashboard or in full from a Full Data Download link. Full datasets may contain elements not represented in the dashboards as the graphics are intended to highlight only the most requested statistics.

Contributing agencies submit data to FDLE on a monthly basis, and FDLE makes monthly updates to the CJDT dashboards.
