The National Center for State Courts’ Pretrial Justice Center for Courts has issued a policy brief on preventive detention. The paper provides historical legal context to preventive detention, outlines due process concerns, and identifies jurisdictions that employ preventive detention. Additional, in-depth information about preventive detention is available in “Model” Bail Laws: Re-Drawing the Line Between Pretrial Release and Detention by Tim Schnacke, of the Center for Legal and Evidence Based Practices.
