Allegheny County Jail Population Management Dashboards


These dashboards provide an overview of the population incarcerated in the Allegheny County Jail (ACJ). The dashboards display information about: the people staying in the ACJ facility and in ACJ’s Alternative Housing Program; trends in bookings, releases and lengths of stay; and what share of the ACJ population was involved in human services, received publicly funded physical/behavioral health services or public benefits, or had some involvement with the justice system (juvenile justice, adult probation or jail) before their booking. The dashboards rely on data from the Allegheny County Jail Offender Management System and are updated daily.

Customize the dashboard data
After selecting one of the dashboards below, use the dropdown lists on the left or at the top to filter the data. Alternatively, you can filter the charts by clicking on categories within the charts. Holding the control key allows you to select more than one category in a chart.
