Scan of Pretrial Practices - PJI 2019 

10-02-2019 01:30 PM

Since its inception as the Pretrial Services Resource Center (PSRC) in 1977, the Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI) has conducted a scan of practices approximately every ten years (1979, 1989, 2001, 2009). This 2019 Scan is our fifth scan of pretrial practices.

For the 2019
Scan of Pretrial Practices (Scan), 89 counties and 2 independent cities, representing jurisdictions of high, medium, and low densities, completed all sections of the survey; an additional five counties completed some sections, and their responses were included where appropriate. For the purposes of this report, these jurisdictions are collectively referred to as counties. This Scan explored the nature of the changes in pretrial justice across the country, and how those real-life behaviors squared with legal principles and evidence-based practices. 

This entry contains the full report, an executive summary, and a copy of the survey sent to jurisdictions.
