The Intelligence-Driven Prosecution Model: A Case Study in the New York County District Attorney's Office

By Jennifer Tallon, Dana Kralstein, Erin Farley and Michael Rempel

This report presents the findings from an evaluation of the Intelligence-Driven Prosecution Model, implemented in 2010 by the New York County District Attorney’s Office. The model relies on the Crime Strategies Unit which uses intelligence and technology to understand the people, places, and problems driving crime in order to improve prosecutorial decision-making. Evaluation results suggest the model produces intelligence influencing prosecutorial decisions such as whether—and for how much—bail was set, charge severity at disposition, and sentence type and length.
