Criminal Justice Data Transparency

The Florida Legislature created Florida Statutes §900.05 and §943.6871 that establish a framework for an expanded criminal justice data collection and sharing that became known as a Criminal Justice Data Transparency (CJDT) initiative. The goal of the CJDT initiative is to increase public visibility of criminal justice processes throughout the state and to provide policymakers with the information they need to make informed policy decisions.

The legislation directs FDLE to collect and publish CJDT data received from seven (7) contributing bodies:

  1. Clerks of Court
  2. County Detention Facilities (jails)
  3. Florida Department of Corrections
  4. Justice Administrative Commission
  5. Public Defender Offices
  6. Regional Conflict Counsel
  7. State Attorney Offices
The CJDT data collection process established a state and local system capable of allowing electronic data transmission from the contributing agencies to FDLE.
