Measuring What Matters: Outcome and Performance Measures for the Pretrial Services Field, Second Edition, is the latest publication from the National Institute of Corrections outlining critical success criteria for the pretrial services field. Like its previous edition, Measuring What Matters, Second Edition, helps practitioners gather consistent and meaningful data to track the performance of pretrial programs based on the mission and needs of their local criminal justice system.
The second edition emphasizes measures that work in the real world and introduces a new definition of what it means to be successful in pretrial services. Each measure ties to the three principles of bail maximizing release, ensuring court appearance, and maintaining public safety and features commentary discussing how the measure has changed over time based on changes in the pretrial field.
