In order to significantly reduce Indiana’s reliance on pretrial detention, we support reforms to limit pretrial detention to the rare case in which a person poses a serious, clear threat to another person. After even a short stay in jail, research shows many people face significant collateral damage, such as job loss or interrupted education. HB 1076 would effectively expand cite and release policies, ultimately reducing unnecessary incarceration.
