Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price Reaffirms her Commitment to Transparency in Sharing Information with the Public

March 1, 2024

Oakland, CA— Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price reaffirms her commitment to sharing data from her office with the public. Achieving a level of transparency involves collecting and aggregating reliable case-related data. However, that has proven to be a significant challenge, primarily due to a poorly developed and untested technological infrastructure the new administration inherited in 2023. While the case management system functions to support day-to-day case responsibilities, it is woefully inadequate for creating summary data accurately representing our operations over time.

“I tasked my chief of administration and operations to research and identify partners to join our office in building a first-of-its-kind data use agreement with the California Policy Lab at UC Berkeley,” said DA Pamela Price. “Our first engagement with CPL focused on reviewing five years of basic data for the office. This analysis is currently in the final stages of data validation. Our goal is to create a data-driven support system that will be an asset for prosecutors while simultaneously meeting the need for transparency without compromising the pursuit of justice for victims of crime.”

In addition to working with CPL to expedite a state-of-the-art data management system, the ACDAO is also engaging in robust data and analytic capacity-building work, including partnering with the Safety and Justice Challenge Network and the Prosecutorial Performance Indicators (PPIs). Through this collaboration, the DA’s office will create a broader, more streamlined, accessible, and sturdy set of supports all in one place. The work has already begun with a data diagnostic establishing a solid foundation for future indicator and metric development and additional analysis support.





The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office (DAO) is one of California’s largest prosecutors’ offices and is led by Alameda County’s first Black woman District Attorney Pamela Y. Price. Price brings her vision to this office to fairly administer justice in the pursuit of thriving, healthy, and safe communities for every person who steps foot in Alameda County, no matter their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, income, or zip code. Price has been recognized as one of the most progressive prosecutors through her forward-thinking, innovative strategies to interrupt cycles of violence and crime and bring change to a criminal justice system rooted in systemic racism.
