"Domestic Violence: a City Responds," a special reporting project in the Fall 2012 edition of the San Francisco Public Press, exposes holes in the tracking of criminal cases and the rate of prosecution for abuse within the home. The issue made headlines this year with a contentious criminal case against Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. But we found that the District Attorney's Office prosecutes fewer cases per capita than in any county in the Bay Area, and police say they cannot be sure of the accuracy of at least eight years of investigative records. The project will roll out online through early October.
