The Joint Technology Committee (JTC) will host a webinar next Tuesday, June 28 on technology and risk-assessment tools to support pretrial release decision-making.
Evidence-based pretrial risk assessment tools are better predictors of pretrial success than money bail or professional discretion alone. Jurisdictions can implement a pretrial risk assessment tool using data collected manually from local, state and federal databases, but a pretrial risk assessment tool would ideally be automated, and integrated with existing systems that house relevant data. Implementing an automated pretrial release tool is a relatively small project with the potential for significant social and fiscal benefits.
This webinar will discuss many of the ideas raised in a recently published JTC Resource Bulletin by the same title. Go to the JTC Publications and Webinars page for more details.
