Pretrial Justice Institute

Useful resource:

Pretrial justice is the part of the criminal justice system that begins when a person comes into contact with law enforcement (or the police) and ends when any resulting charges are resolved—usually through a dismissal, a plea, or a trial.

It is often referred to as the “front door” of the criminal justice system.

A just pretrial system has three basic obligations.

  1. It must keep the public safe.
  2. It must also ensure that individuals accused of crime appear in court as needed.
  3. And, according to the U.S. Constitution, it must respect the presumption of innocence and not unfairly interfere with the freedom of people who have not been found guilty.

The Pretrial Justice Institute’s website provides extensive information about common pretrial justice challenges, commonsense solutions, and what you can do to ensure the system where you live produces just outcomes that serve all people.

This is an excellent resource for police supervision. This would be a great addition for a Police Organization and Management Class. Dr Gary Cordner is a great writer and is one of my favorite Criminal Justice authors.
