Why Tribridge Pretrial360?
Tribridge Pretrial360 is a set of solutions to help agencies deal with pretrial management more effectively. Built on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Pretrial360 has three distinct modules to focus on different areas of Pretrial Management: Defendant Management, Supervision Case Management, and Risk Assessments to help jurisdictions move from resource-based to risk-based bail decision-making process. They are integrated by design and come with built-in functionality for the flexibility of a custom built solution.
As requirements move to more of an emphasis on collection and publication of pretrial justice performance and outcome measures, Pretrial360's solutions are designed to allow for more informed decision-making at each phase in the pretrial process, from first contact with law enforcement through adjudication. Often, data needed exist in various locations. Whether it be the state criminal history repositories, jails, police departments, sheriffs' offices, courts and local pretrial services or probation departments, interoperability of data systems is key. Tribridge's expertise can help integrate and streamline these silos and processes. And when choosing a cloud option, a low monthly subscription fee allows quick deployment in a CJIS-compliant environment.
When defense counsel is engaged prior to the initial appearance and is prepared to represent the defendant on the issue of bail, this represents a critical stage in the criminal case because liberty is at stake. Early screening of defendant cases will allow for appropriate charging or timely dismissal, as well as early diversion or problem-solving court eligibility determinations. Pretrial360 can produce and store all associated reports for better management.
Supervision Case Management
Supervision services can greatly improve pretrial outcomes by providing appropriate conditions and services for those awaiting trial. Pretrial360's alerts and automated workflows provides supervision and monitoring of defendants released by the court. Common pretrial supervision conditions include checking in with a pretrial case manager, court date reminders, drug testing, GPS supervision, and/or treatment referrals.
Conducting a risk assessment on all defendants in custody awaiting the initial appearance in court can help with pretrial incarceration rates. With Pretrial360, regularly reviewing the pretrial detainee population in the jail allows jurisdictions to see if circumstances allowing for pretrial release may have changed. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM database tracks all necessary information to pull real-time data instantly. In addition to assessments to determine pretrial release, specialized assessments such as domestic violence, substance abuse, and mental health evaluations can assist in the release and supervision decision.
