§ 837-u. The division of criminal justice services, in conjunction
with the chief administrator of the courts, shall collect data and

including the top charge of each case; the number and type of charges in
each defendant's criminal record; the number of individuals released on
recognizance; the number of individuals released on non-monetary
conditions, including the conditions imposed; the number of individuals
committed to the custody of a sheriff prior to trial; the rates of
failure to appear and rearrest; the outcome of such cases or
dispositions; whether the defendant was represented by counsel at every
court appearance regarding the defendant's securing order; the length of
the pretrial detention stay and any other such information as the chief
administrator and the division of criminal justice services may find
necessary and appropriate. Such annual report shall aggregate the data
collected by county; court, including city, town and village courts; and

of individual defendants. The report shall be released publicly and
published on the websites of the office of court administration and the
