Nationally, the Pretrial Justice Institute partners with a number of organizations to provide a wide range of supports to pretrial programs. We work together to raise visibility and increase understanding of the importance of pretrial services among county officials, court officials and other members of the correctional systems.
At the state and local level, the Pretrial Justice Institute collaborates with state groups to improve state pretrial laws and policies. This work ranges from participating in coalitions as issue experts, to providing speakers and drafting testimony, to helping develop solutions for jail crowding legislation.
