FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bond Court data now available online

Released On 05/07/2018

Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans today published the outcomes of bond court throughout the Circuit Court of Cook County since his general order on bail took effect last year. This is the first comprehensive release of performance measures related to bail reform.

The measures evaluate the following areas since the implementation of General Order 18.8A on September 18, 2017: Cook County Jail population trends; initial bond orders set among Public Safety Assessment (PSA) felony defendants; d-bond dollar amount needed to secure initial release from custody; rate of pretrial release by initial bond order; court appearance rate; community safety rate; and assessment of risk for new violent criminal activity.

Since General Order 18.8A went into effect, nine out of 10 defendants have appeared in court when they were supposed to and nine out of 10 defendants remained arrest-free in the community pending the disposition of their case.

The dashboards are available at www.cookcountycourt.org by clicking “Court Statistics and Reports” on the navigation menu on the right side of the homepage.
