JPI Reports on Bail

The Justice Policy Institute published three reports on the U.S. bail system in an effort to raise public awareness on an issue that is not often highlighted -- and one that most people do not fully understand. The intricacies of the U.S. bail system are complex from the point of arrest to the insurance agencies that oversee bail bond companies.

During the month of September 2012, JPI published Bail Fail, For Better or for Profit and Bailing on Baltimore, three reports that analyzed the current system of bail and its impacts on the community at large.
