Pretrial Justice Working Group

PJWG Logo

In response to Attorney General Eric Holder's call for national pretrial justice reform at the Department of Justice's 2011 National Symposium on Pretrial Justice, the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) convened in October 2011 the first meeting of a standing, multi-disciplinary working group of national leaders in criminal justice. The mission of the Pretrial Justice Working Group (PJWG) is to collaboratively address the challenges in moving from a costly pretrial justice system to one that is safe, fair and effective.

The PJWG has three main objectives:

Coordination

The PJWG coordinates the initiatives of partner organizations who are working on pretrial justice issues. PJI serves as the hub of information for all PJWG members and disseminates this information via this site.

Collaboration

The PJWG offers members an environment where collaboration and not competition is highly valued. The collaborative nature of the coalition allows for the development of strategic partnerships and builds trust among groups that are coming together for a common purpose.

Coaching

The PWJG offers members an opportunity to both receive and provide coaching to other members. PJI regularly serves as a coach to members such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the National Association of Counties, providing substantive support, strategic ideas, funding strategies, and workshop and webinar development.
