  • 2019 NEVADA PRETRIAL RISK ASSESSMENT TRAINING (J, CA, M/S, C, PT)

    Free Recorded Webcast (September 2019)

    Training Description: Nationwide, courts are moving towards the use of evidence-based risk assessment tools because they help guarantee that a pretrial release decision is based on the individual's risk of failure to appear or the threat that he or she poses to public safety rather than the individual's ability to pay bail. This instills greater fairness and consistency into the process.
