The Pretrial Justice Center for Courts (PJCC) works closely with the Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators to implement their resolution recommending evidence-based assessment of risk in setting pretrial release conditions and the presumptive use of non-financial release conditions consistent with assessments of risk. With support from the Public Welfare Foundation, PJCC provides information and tools, offers education and technical assistance, facilitates cross-state learning and collaboration, and promotes the use of legal and evidence-based pretrial practices for courts across the country.
