DCJ Releases Latest Research Brief: Assessing Potential Impacts of 2020 Bail Reforms in New York City

In our latest brief, using data from the New York State Office of Court Administration, DCJ applies NY State bail reforms, which are scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2020, to 2018 data to assess how pretrial release outcomes would have been different in New York City as a whole and by borough. If 2020 Bail Reforms were in place in 2018, an additional 20,349 cases would have been released without bail.
