Data in this repository was collected by [Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice](
It includes
1. Sheriff’s Daily population reports, newly available on the Sheriff’s website, which show the daily numbers of people in the jail, and what division they are in, plus the number of people on EM (“community corrections”), but nothing about demographics, pretrial/sentenced, bond status, etc. We have these reports from August 18-October 18, November 6, 13, 20, and 27, and daily data from December 1 and on are available on the Sheriff’s website.
2. Sheriff’s Weekly population reports from CCJ (via FOIA from Sheriff's office and voluntary sharing from another agency -- shows populations on EM and in CCJ, and the “bookings, discharges, and shipments” along with weekly averages and a YTD summary of weekly populations. This report also has no breakdown by pretrial versus sentenced, bond status, or demographic information; does contain weekly averages YTD, etc.) We have these for November 6, 13, 20, and 27, December 4, 11, and 18, and January 1, 15, 22.
3. Jail Population Data from FOIA requests to the Sheriff, showing the racial and gender breakdowns of the daily jail populations from August 18, 2017 to December 15, 2017. The racial and gender breakdowns are also broken out by whether a person is incarcerated based on a unpaid money bond, no bond, on EM, or sentenced to a jail term.
4. Daily (weekday) CCJ population breakdown according to bond status (obtained via protracted FOIA request from Sheriff's office; shows who is held in CCJ with specific numbers for people with unpaid monetary bonds, people held no-bond, and people with EM orders that haven't been released on EM.) We have this for August 18-December 15, 2017 and will request additional dates in the future.
> I request the following records for the dates of 8/18/2017 to 11/18/2017:
> The daily number and percentage of the confined pretrial population with a D or a C bond.
> The daily number and percentage of the confined pretrial population held on No Bond.
> Please note that I have expanded the time frame to reflect the time that has passed since I submitted my initial request. Please also note that I am requesting tallies for each of the days that fall within this time window.
> lease let me know when I can respect a response.
