Designed specifically for pre-trial release programs, and used in conjunction with the risk assessments, COMPAS Pretrial allows for the collection of case information, the formulation of bond and release recommendations and tracking of the court decision.
Assess risk for failure to appear, use the Violence Risk Scale to assess risk to public safety if released to the community.
Tracks conditions of release, case processing events, supervision levels, contacts, court information, next court dates, and more.
Using a combination of the Pre-trial Risk Scale, the severity of current offense, and criminal history to recommend an appropriate supervision level.
Developed from years of staff’s experience in community corrections program design, implementation, management and evaluation, the Pre-trial module is a comprehensive, dynamic software solution managing the offender pre-trial process.
Northpointe has developed and validated an 8 item pretrial risk (failure to appear) assessment tool. This may be used in combination with our 5 item general recidivism risk screener and/or our Risk of Violence Scale which may be used in any combination, if desired, to assist in screening and determining risk and appropriateness for placing pretrial release candidates into the community. Use the pretrial case management module to make recommendations to the court and track your pretrial case in the community.
Based on their assessed failure to appear risk and the offender’s most serious current charge and criminal history – the software automatically recommends a supervision level if placed in the community with the ability to track overrides and reasons.
The Pre-Trial module is seamlessly integrated within the COMPAS Suite allowing for the tracking and management of all pre-trial events.
