After explaining the functions of the Federal Criminal Case Processing Statistics (FCCPS) tool, this web page provides online access to statistical tables and statistical trends related to federal law enforcement, prosecution/courts, and incarceration.
The U.S. Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), through its Federal Justice Statistics Resource Center (FJSRC), compiles comprehensive information on suspects and defendants processed in the federal criminal justice system. The FCCPS tool is an interface that can be used to analyze federal case processing data. Users of this tool can generate various statistics in the areas of federal law enforcement, prosecution/courts, and incarcerations for the years between 1994 and 2014. This tool includes offenders held for violating federal laws. Commitments from the D.C. Superior court are excluded. Under law enforcement, statistical tables and trends can be accessed for suspects in investigations initiated, persons arrested and booked, and suspects in investigations concluded. For prosecution/courts, statistical tables and trends address defendants charged in criminal cases, defendants in criminal cases closed, and offenders sentenced. Incarceration statistical tables and trends cover prisoners entering federal prison, prisoners in federal prison at yearend, and prisoners exiting federal prison. Online access is also provided to information on the Bureau of Justice Statistics, its web site, and its partners.
