The grant titled: "Pretrial Risk Assessment: Behavioral Health and Racial Equity" is a two-year research project (2022-2024), where they will partner with a network of researchers to examine the potential for different types of pretrial risk assessment tools to reduce disparities in carceral decisions by race, and presence of mental health or substance use concerns. They will partner with multiple adult and juvenile justice agencies to examine the impact of risk tool characteristics on system uptake and the presence or absence of test bias by race, mental health, and substance use concerns.
