Deaths in Custody Reporting Act

DISCLAIMER: The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC) is the Federally authorized agency to collect and report on deaths in custody. Per Federal law, Data submitted to the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) to comply with the Death in Custody Reporting Act are subject to 34 U.S.C. §10231(a) which protects from disclosure any research or statistical information that is identifiable to any private person. Accordingly, OJP does not release DCR-1A forms to the public. However, the confidentiality statute does not prevent OJP from publishing data related to deaths in custody if the data are not identifiable to a private person, and OJP does periodically publish general data related to deaths in custody.
