Pretrial Services in Lake County, Illinois--Patterns of Change Over Time, 1986-2000

Volume 67 Number 3
December 2003

The authors study patterns of change over 15 years in the Pretrial Services Program in Lake County, Illinois. They describe trends, but also attempt to explain some of the empirical findings. Their goal is to demonstrate the utility and value of "in-house" research at the local, single-jurisdictional level.
