Public Safety Assessment Website

laura and john arnoldThis new website from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) offers an array of resources that can support jurisdictions in implementing the Public Safety Assessment (PSA) in their criminal justice systems. The resources, which aim to capture and distill the LJAF’s years of experience helping local jurisdictions implement pretrial risk assessment, have been carefully developed in partnership with technical assistance providers, current PSA jurisdiction leaders, and other valued stakeholders. The website provides implementation guides that walk jurisdictions through site training, change management, and research and testing details; summaries of research to date; and information about the features, purpose, and history of the PSA, along with a growing “Help Desk” function for registered users.
