The PAE Disposition dashboard contains information about criminal cases processed by the court that if convicted, have a potential penalty of incarceration. The dashboard contains all cases initiated between January 1, 2014, and the present (data updated daily on a one-day lag) that have not been deleted due to an expungement (a legal process to remove a criminal charge from a person's record and to seal or destroy the state's records of the arrest, charge, and/or conviction). The dashboards rely on data from the Criminal Justice Services' Data Warehouse which includes arrest processing, jail, pretrial services, district court, and superior court data.
It is common for law enforcement to issue a Citation, serve a Criminal Summons, or execute a Custodial Arrest that involves multiple charges for the person at the same time. This is referred to as an arrest event. A Person Arrest Event, or PAE, is the grouping of all of the charges and resulting cases that stemmed from a single arrest event. The PAE Disposition dashboard displays information about each arrest event for a person (all cases that resulted from the single arrest event). A PAE is disposed when all cases resulting from the arrest event have been resolved. As a result, the PAE Pretrial Period begins with an arrest event and ends when the last arrest event related case is resolved (e.g., Dismissed, Not Guilty, Guilty). The PAE Disposition dashboard is intended to show how people and their arrest events are processed through the pretrial stage of the justice system.
