ICAC Arrest Effectiveness

Data4Justice defines arrest effectiveness as the combined rankings of arrest rates based on jurisdiction population and the cost per arrest based on total ICAC funding.

There is concerning disparity in performance.

Data4Justice urges the Department of Justice to provide oversight and accountability for the ICACs and the federal tax-payer money used to fund the ICACs.
