Selma, Alabama, a city world-renowned for leading the march to racial equality and that has witnessed so much bloodshed and sacrifice along the way—this city is in trouble. Its population is shrinking. A tornado recently leveled whole communities. And the criminal justice system has left a lot of people in the dark. There just isn’t enough usable data to answer even the basic questions: who’s in jail and for how long? To build in solutions for a more fair, efficient and safe criminal justice system, Selma needs data and the infrastructure to support it.
