Developing an Illinois Pretrial Tool
JSP, in partnership with the AOIC, is developing a statewide pretrial tool to standardize pretrial decisions throughout Illinois. The purpose of this work is to develop a set of assessment tools that support decision makers in improving equity, fairness, and success for individuals engaged in the pretrial phase of the criminal justice system.
This tool will consist of two tiers:
Tier I Assessment
Helps guide decision makers on the front end of the system on the level of success an individual has with minimal support, medium support, and maximum support.
Tier II Assessment
Help decision makers and pretrial support services provide individualized interventions that support the success of the person on pretrial supervision if/when released
Establish and convene a Steering Committee to identify representative jurisdications, provide oversight and communication to local and state stakeholders, and support the development and implementation.
Tier I: Collect existing data on people arrested/booked into jail representative of the state
Tier II: Collect needs/supportive data at release from jail representative of the state
Conduct validity and reliability analysis examining overall population and subgroups (e.g., females, people of color)
Work with the steering committee to develop a decision-making framework, training materials, and piloting of the tools to ensure useability and sustainability
