Prosecutorial Performance Indicators (PPI)

Montgomery County’s top prosecutor has launched an investigation into whether racial bias plays a role in prosecutorial decisions within his own office. By Dan Morse, The Washington Post

The Montgomery County State’s Attorney is Putting His Own Office Under the Microscope.

Independent researchers will examine how county prosecutors administer justice. By Cory Smith, News 4 Washington

The Montgomery County States Attorney's Office is a Model of Reform.

State’s Attorney John McCarthy, announced a study to closely examine whether his own office has demonstrated a racial bias in prosecutorial decisions. That’s an extraordinary move, given that if bias is found by the independent research team, it will inevitably point a finger at Mr. McCarthy who is, after all, in charge of the office. That an elected official is willing to take this leap is not just a credit to him but should perhaps become a model for every state’s attorney in Maryland.  By The BALTIMORE SUN EDITORIAL BOARD
