Santa Clara Pretrial Risk Assessment Instrument Report - PJI 2012 

10-06-2016 16:57

This report describes the empirically-derived pretrial risk assessment instrument for use in Santa Clara County, California. The report summarizes the methods used to collect and analyze the data, the results of the analyses, and the empirically-derived instrument and how it is scored, and then concludes with recommendations for next steps to implement the new instrument. The instrument will allow pretrial program staff, judges, attorneys, and jail staff to more accurately determine defendants’ risk to public safety, for not appearing in court, and for having a technical violation if under pretrial supervision.
