New York lacks central data keeper when it comes to bail reform analysis

By Amanda Fries

The Times Union reported on the data collection for bail reform. NYSBA is mentioned in the article.

If you are looking for data and analysis on the state’s new bail reforms, you will have to hold out for individual counties to provide that information or for private institutions to weigh in.

When New York passed the criminal justice reforms that took effect Jan.1, lawmakers asked each pretrial services agency to compile the data annually and submit it to the state’s Office of Court Administration for posting to a public website.
