Our third annual FOIA campaign is getting underway with a target of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is responsible for administration and stafffing of the Cook County Jail and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police as well as guarding the courts throughout Cook County. There is far too little scrutiny into the activities of the office. Currently far too little data is avavilbe for the public to access to be able to reliably use the data to judge the activities of the Sheriff’s Office. Our FOIA campaign is designed to either use the freedom of information act to access systemic data that empowers communities or use litigation to open the data.
