Road Map to Pretrial Reform - Urban Institute 2016 

01-28-2017 03:42

States, as well as the federal government, have introduced numerous changes in recent decades to improve policy and practice in pretrial release decisionmaking. This report first provides background on pretrial decisionmaking and useful resources to learn more about the previous reform efforts that motivated New Hampshire to implement data-driven pretrial justice reforms. We then present findings from data analysis on the pretrial defendant population and identify data gaps and limitations, which can be a barrier to data-driven pretrial decisionmaking. We conclude by presenting a road map to develop and implement a validated pretrial risk assessment tool to reform how pretrial release decisions are made in New Hampshire and in other jurisdictions across the United States.
