Violation Tracker Offense Type Totals

Note: The totals here are adjusted to account for the fact that each parent's entries may include both agency records and settlement announcements for the same case; or else a penalty covering multiple locations may be listed in the individual records for each of the facilities. They are also adjusted to reflect cases in which federal and state agencies cooperated and issued separate announcements of the outcome.
