Illinois Sentencing Policy Advisory Council

The Illinois Sentencing Policy Advisory Council (SPAC) was created to “collect, analyze and present data from all relevant sources to more accurately determine the consequences of sentencing policy decisions and to review the effectiveness and efficiency of current sentencing policies and practices.” We built an interactive tool that will allow legislators and the public to simulate shortening sentence lengths and reducing admissions and note the resulting change in the prison population.
