Program Description

The Smart Pretrial Demonstration Initiative (SPDI), administered by BJA, is part of BJA's ?Smart Suite? of crime fighting programs?Smart Prosecution, Smart Policing, Smart Supervision, and now Smart Pretrial. BJA established the first program within this Smart Suite over 4 years ago with the launch of Smart Policing. Smart Policing supports law enforcement agencies in building evidence-based, data-driven law enforcement tactics and strategies that are effective, efficient, and economical. For more information on Smart Policing, see the program's most recent fact sheet: www.smartpolicinginitiative.com/sites/all/files/SPI_One_Pager_2013.pdf. The Smart Suite represents a strategic approach that brings more 'science? into criminal justice operations by leveraging innovative applications of analysis, technology, and evidence-based practices with the goal of improving performance and effectiveness while containing costs; an important consideration in today's fiscal environment. The FY 2014 SPDI grant program seeks to build upon analysis-driven, evidence-based pretrial justice by encouraging local and tribal jurisdictions to effectively implement risk assessment and appropriate supervision and/or diversion strategies targeting pretrial outcomes within their jurisdictions.
