Launch Project
Criminal Justice Dashboard New York City

How I Started

JailVizNYC is an interactive dashboard that allows people to easily filter the data, view population trends, and explore the charges holding people in jail. It can help identify where reforms are needed at arrest or arraignment and during case processing or sentencing to reduce the jail population.

How I Built This

I built this dashboard in a weekend using R Shiny.
