In an effort to help educate the field on the importance and impact that pretrial services can have at the state and local level, NCJA is hosting a three part pre-trial webinar miniseries. The purpose of this webinar miniseries is to help criminal justice practitioners at the state and local level understand the evidence base behind pretrial risk assessment, release and supervision.
The Evidence Behind Pretrial: Enhancing the Use of Data-Driven Decision-Making
The Evidence Behind Pretrial: Enhancing the Use of Data-Driven Decision-Making featured a high-level discussion with leading experts on what research says about pretrial detention, risk assessment, and the impact of decision-making on public safety, fairness, and cost-effectiveness. In addition, attendees heard from two pretrial service agencies with experience implementing and using risk assessments to make data-driven decisions related to pretrial release and supervision.
