Bexar County Reform Work

Building Transparency Through Our Data Dashboard

TCJC launched our Bexar County data dashboard in April 2020. The dashboard, created with January Advisors and with support from Microsoft Cities Team, puts data on disparities in Bexar County’s justice system right at your fingertips to hold leaders accountable. It overlays data from 400,000 criminal court cases with demographic information to create a comprehensive view of case outcomes in Bexar County, including the degree to which arrests are skewed in communities of color, and how bail amounts differ – especially important to track as issues surrounding bail remain ongoing.

In August 2020, we used the dashboard on social media when alerting followers to Bexar County’s budget process.
