Abstract:

This guide to Crime, Courts, and Corrections was created to make it easier to find, understand, and use information about the public safety, criminal justice, and corrections systems in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Pennsylvania. While public agencies are now sharing a growing amount of data, this information does not have value to most people without context or an understanding of underlying systems, laws, policies, and processes.
