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.
