Moran announces increased funding for pretrial services

NIC’s initiative EBDM is a strategic method of applying research-supported principles to justice system decisions. EBDM’s goal is to build a framework across criminal justice agencies to protect public safety and to improve outcomes for the justice-involved. The initiative is now in Phase V. In this phase the selected sites--Indiana, Virginia, and Wisconsin--are creating state-level processes and strategies to align state and local officials and jurisdictions with one another and with the principles of EBDM.

The impact of the EBDM program can be seen in jurisdictions across Virginia, where the governor’s office will be adding $2 million in increased funding for community corrections and pretrial services. Brian Moran, state secretary for public health and homeland security stated, “The increased funding is expected to help communities around the state explore alternatives to incarceration and implement risk assessments for recently arrested offenders. Moran pointed to the Virginia Pretrial Risk Assessment Instrument, a nationally used model, as a well-received method for determining the risk of those being considered for release and community supervision ahead of their trial date.”
