St. Louis Releases the Second Local Report out of the Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice

We are pleased to announce the release of the Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice’s second report replication by the University of Missouri-St. Louis site! The University of Missouri- St. Louis released the report on October 11, 2018.  The report, Tracking Enforcement Trends in the City of St. Louis, 2002-2017 , examines trends for five types of enforcement actions including felony, misdemeanor, and municipal arrests, arrests for bench warrants, and summonses-in-lieu of arrest. The report analyzes these actions by demographic characteristics (age, gender, race/ethnicity) as raw numbers as well as rates.

This is the second report coming out of the Research Network on Misdemeanor Justice, an alliance of eight jurisdictions examining trends in the enforcement and disposition of lower-level offenses. The Research Network sites bring together university researchers and local data partners, such as police, corrections, and courts, to help inform criminal justice policy reform.
