Statewide Data Dashboards Initiative

The Arnold Foundation has awarded Multnomah County a grant to develop, implement and host a new statewide performance measurement platform that will provide real-time data to Parole and Probation Officers (PPOs) about their clients using Tableau Server dashboards. The dashboards created for each county will provide PPOs with data in user-friendly formats that allow them to see a client’s history, identify emerging trends on their caseload, and monitor fidelity to evidence-based practices.
