The Bail Post

PBT Team

What do we know about criminal justice reforms or bail reform?  How do we evaluate whether reforms are helping or making the situation worse?  How can we take politics out of criminal justice and focus on public safety?  The Bail Post seeks to be a place where legislators and the public can educate themselves on a host of criminal justice/bail reform issues.  With various attempts at criminal justice reform from New York to Texas to California, many people are confused as to what is working and what is not.  With the passage of time, more and more data is coming to light over what successful reform looks like and what reforms have been found to not be working.  The rise in violent crime across the country has been startling and law makers and the public alike are desperate to find legislation that is effective.   Some might ask whether some of the reforms making the situation worse?  The Bail Post is an on-going discussion that seeks to cut to the core to provide education on the various issues raised and to highlight what successful criminal justice reform looks like and what measures have been disastrous. Join us and educate yourself about the best practices that jurisdictions must implement to keep their communities safe, while ensuring fairness to defendants.  As a someone said recently "Public safety is the foundation of a society.  Without public safety we do not have a society."
