Currently, our criminal justice system does not track the number of people in jail due to their inability to pay bond. This bill will increase government transparency and accountability by requiring Clerks of the Court and Sheriff's Offices to submit monthly pretrial reports to Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, which will then be made publicly available for five years.
