With the goal of creating a safer, fairer, and less costly pretrial justice system, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) have announced the development of a national pretrial risk assessment tool.

The result of a large-scale, two-year project, in the research brief, Developing a National Model for Pretrial Risk Assessment, LJAF laid out the need for the new tool, described how it was developed, and expressed their desire for it to be used in jurisdictions across the country.


Here are the research summaries and reports.
