This dashboard of criminal cases is part of County Attorney Freeman’s commitment to transparency. It provides a breakdown of criminal cases and trends for the last five years (including the current year).
When will this data be updated?
The dashboard is updated nightly. Therefore, the information is never more than 24 hours old.
Race and Gender
Race and gender data is collected and submitted by law enforcement. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office does not collect this information. To prevent subject identification, race and gender do not filter by Municipality or Minneapolis Community.
Because the case information is updated nightly, it has a noteworthy impact on post-charge diversion cases (see “Charging Decision Glossary”). Post-charge diversion cases are initially marked as charged and are counted as charged cases until a diversion agreement is entered in court. Because that process can take six months or more, cases from previous years regularly move from charged to diverted. Therefore, diversion cases are significantly undercounted, and charged cases significantly overcounted, in the most recent two years.
Offense types are internal case categories utilized by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office. They may not align with Minnesota statutes.
“Unmarked” refers to cases where no offense level was entered in the county attorney’s data system. This occurs when cases are declined or otherwise not submitted to court by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
Submitting agencies are limited to those with at least 10 case submissions during the time period.
