Cook County’s Justice Advisory Council has concluded its comprehensive six month study on the operation of bond court and pre-trial services, and implementation of initiatives is already underway, President Preckwinkle announced today.
The JAC began the study on January 18th at the direction of President Preckwinkle and the Cook County Board of Commissioners. The goal of the review was to understand current practices and procedures in order to provide more humane conditions for those working in, and passing through, bond court. All of the stakeholders, including Cook County Circuit Court Chief Judge Timothy J. Evans, worked cooperatively and proactively with the JAC to create an effective process. These “Justice Enterprise Leaders” include Judge Evans, Clerk Dorothy Brown, Sheriff Tom Dart, State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez and Public Defender Abishi Cunningham.
