Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul has announced new data on domestic abuse incidents in Wisconsin that is available for the public to view.
Last year, the Wisconsin DOJ Bureau of Justice Information and Analysis have published an interactive data dashboard on domestic abuse from 2013 to 2017.
The dashboard covers areas of law enforcement reporting, charging and case processing.
Law enforcement reporting shows the number of incidents, suspects, victims and arrests and can be narrowed down by county, sex, age and ethnicity.
Viewers can also see charges, what they were and the top five most severe charges.
Lastly, case processing takes a look at how many cases there were, what cases are closed, how many suspects were not prosecuted, and if they were misdemeanors or felonies.
The data is available through a Wisconsin Statute that requires district attorney’s to report domestic abuse law enforcement responses, arrests, prosecutions and convictions, annually to the DOJ.
Data only refects those incidents reported to district attorney’s offices by law enforcement, entered into, and flagged as a domestic case by staff.
The dashboards will be refreshed annually on this page.
