Bail Policy and Practice Training Modules

In 2019, Criminal Justice Services partnered with the Pretrial Justice Institute to create a series of ten training and informational modules centered on the administration of justice during the pretrial period. Topics include the local bail policy, the Public Safety Assessment, key principles of pretrial justice, the role of Pretrial Services, and individualized modules for local partners (including Judges, Magistrates, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and law enforcement). 

The development of these modules is intended to create a general understanding of our local statutes, practices, and values. Mecklenburg County has committed to a more individualized and informed decision-making process, with additional, consistent training for all current and incoming justice staff. CJS is pleased to offer access to these trainings to the public and hope our community finds them informative.
