Monthly Public Reports

The monthly public reports provide static data generated from a statewide database of protective and peace orders issued anywhere in the state and include statistics on petitioner/respondent demographics, grounds for granted orders, reasons for denied and dismissed petitions, and other data. The monthly public reports are run on the first day of each month and provide a snapshot of data for the previous month. (For example, the October 2009 monthly public report is run on November 1 and includes information from October 1 through October 31.) Data may change as cases are dismissed, appealed or otherwise modified, however, the public reports only reflect static information (snapshot) for a given month.
