The Maine Statistical Analysis Center (SAC), partnered with the Maine Prosecutors Association (MPA) to establish statewide and by-district prosecutorial data for a five-year period (2017-2021). These baseline data are for a variety of criminal cases, charges, and outcomes and this report is the first of its kind for Maine. The MPA sought to detail these baseline figures and trends in an annual report to both support the ongoing work of Maine’s District Attorneys to address serious crime through data-informed decision-making and to enable key stakeholders and the public to better understand how limited public resources are being used by their respective offices to protect and serve Mainers.
