We want a balanced, fair, and compassionate pretrial system that is transparent and clear to all concerned. Since 2019, PAM has worked in collaboration with justice stakeholders, the courts, law enforcement, advocacy groups, victim’s groups, and other community members to research, examine, and dissect our pretrial process to understand its impact on the community, victims, and people who are justice-involved. We have been developing principles based on evidence-informed pretrial options that we believe are fair and just.
Our goal is to create a system that reserves jail for those who pose a public safety risk, increase community well-being, and reduces disparities based on wealth or race. Read more about the work PAM is doing.
