This dashboard was constructed using bookings data provided by the Missoula County Detention Facility (MCDF). It depicts several key data points that are essential in understanding the jail population and help identify, analyze, solve, and manage systems issues in the criminal justice process. The data points depicted in this dashboard include the average daily jail population (ADP), average length of stay (ALOS), a count of bookings and releases, and the top charges at time of booking.
Reducing racial and ethnic disparities in the justice system is an important part of the CJCC’s mission. Native Americans in particular are disproportionately represented in the population at MCDF. Specifically, between November 2017 and October 2019, on average 17.2% of the non-contract/non-federal population incarcerated at MCDF identified as Native American/Alaskan Native, compared to only 4.3% of residents in Missoula County.1
