Pretrial Release Risk Study, Validation, & Scoring: Final Report

Group: University of Utah

URL: http://ucjc.utah.edu/adult-offenders/pretrial-risk-instrument

Description

The objective of this study was to validate the Pretrial Risk Instrument (PRI) being piloted by Salt Lake County to determine which items are significantly related to pretrial risk (as measured by FTA and recidivism). The study measures construct validity, whether the tool measures the concept it was intended to measure, new arrests during the pretrial period and failures to appear (FTA), and identifies cut-points for low, medium, and high risk offenders. These findings will be used to create a tool that will be used at the Salt Lake County jail to help inform release decisions.
