Research Community

The Pretrial Justice Institute supports the use of data-driven, evidence-informed practices and policies across the juvenile and adult pretrial continuum in order to eliminate outcomes that are influenced by race, gender, social class or economics.

 

  We can only have evidence-based practices if we have evidence.”
Tim Murray Director Emeritus, PJI

 

To that end, PJI supports and encourages both legal and empirical research that informs legislation, local policy, and court rule. PJI is committed to identifying the current gaps in knowledge and the resources and constituencies needed to support an effective research agenda, and to develop a strategy using research to inform policy.
