Bureau of Justice Statistics

Invaluable resource for information on crime and criminal issues in the United States.  Includes data analysis tools on all aspects of criminal behavior, victim information, trends, etc.

A subset within the Bureau of Justice Statistics, NACJD preserves, enhances and shares computerized data concerning capital punishment, inmate statistics for both state and federal facilities, terrorism, violence against women, and much more. Produces original research drawn from this data. The Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics contain:
  • Numbers of defendants in cases filed
  • Number of defendants in cases closed and outcomes for those defendants
  • Variety of prisoner statistics
Includes information about the closest ICE Detention Center.
A counterpoint is Detention Watch Network (DWN), one of several nonprofit organization workings for the rights of U.S. detained and deported immigrants.  For more nonprofit immigrant advocate groups, see ACLU Immigrants Rights Project Directory.
See especially One America. This group is based in Seattle and works for a hate-free America.
