On December 20, 2013, the Indiana Supreme Court created a committee "to study evidence-based pre-trial release assessments and to make recommendations to the Court, including proposed new or amended rules and procedures to facilitate the implementation of such recommendations." The resulting committee consisted of five trial judges, two legislators, four probation officers, a county prosecutor, the Chair of the Indiana State Bar Association Criminal Justice Section, and representatives of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the Indiana Public Defender Council. Based on its evaluation of the resulting impact on public safety, reduced recidivism, reduced taxpayer costs, enhanced reliability and fairness of criminal justice results, the Committee recommended this Court adopt a new rule to urge Indiana trial courts to use evidence-based risk assessments to inform pretrial release decisions.

On September 5, 2017, the Chief Justice of Indiana issued an order amending Rule 26, included below.
