Joe prioritized using the new digitized data to create and publish interactive data dashboards. These dashboards—found on the District Attorney’s webpage—give the public an inside look at the volume of cases received and the types of offenses that filed in the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. Additionally, filters such as offense type, race, and gender may be applied to the data to further analyze the cases that are brought to the District Attorney’s Office.
