Monitoring Cook County's Central Bond Court, A Community Courtwatching Initiative - Coalition to End Money Bond 2018 

28 days ago

From the report: In July 2017, the Coalition to End Money Bond organized and trained scores of volunteers to attend and observe Cook County's Central Bond Court as part of the Community Courtwatching Initiative. The goal was to evaluate the impact and efficacy of various reforms targeting Central Bond Court and the bail process, with a focus on a new court rule that went into effect on September 18, 2017 aimed at limiting monetary bonds to amounts that people could afford to pay. Courtwatchers were in Central Bond Court every day during the month of August, before the rule took effect, and then again from September 18 through October 22, after the rule had taken effect. A total of 46 unique courtwatchers completed a total of 93 courtwatching shifts, 51 in August and 42 in September and October.
