Lake County Jail Dashboard
Through a partnership with Loyola University Chicago, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office will have the ability to create comprehensive, centralized views of jail data for review and analysis by the community. This data will give the community the ability to see information such as daily jail population, monthly jail population, and demographical data such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, felony or misdemeanor charges, as well as if the inmate is being held due to pretrial requirements, Judge ordered sentence, or being held for U.S. Bureau of Prisons (contract).
