St. Paul’s City Attorney’s Office to participate in study on public perception of the legal system

The St. Paul City Attorney’s Office is one of two sites selected for a two-year project to assess public perception about the fairness of the legal system. Columbus, Ohio is the second site.

The project is led by the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys in partnership with Yale Law School’s Justice Collaboration and LaGreta Consulting. It is based on the principle of procedural justice that focuses on the way police and other legal authorities interact with the public and how people’s perceptions of those interactions shape their views of the police and the legal system.

St. Paul City Attorney Lindsay Olson said, “To truly transform the criminal legal system into one that achieves that goal and promotes procedural fairness, we must eliminate racial and economic inequalities and build community trust and Respect must be earned.” “We are excited to be selected for this project, and we welcome the opportunity to be part of the solution.”

The office will also be asked to supply electronic bulk data extraction of data for all cases processed by the office over a period of one to two years.
