Bail Month - BAIL FACT #13 - Commercial Bail is the Original Evidence-Based Form of Pretrial Release

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Bail fact #13 2014One of the most popular phrases used by proponents of public sector pretrial release programs is "evidenced-based."  What makes this so interesting is that all of the "evidence" around pretrial release doesn't point to the effectiveness of public sector release, but rather points to effectiveness of private sector commercial bail.  In fact every study ever done on the topic of pretrial release has proven that the most effective form of releasing a defendant pretrial is through a financially secured commercial bail bond.  In 2013, the Little Hoover Commission in Sacramento, California held several hearings on pretrial release and heard testimony from a wide range of industry experts.  The final report issued by the Commission identified commercial bail as the oldest form of evidence based pretrial release.
