Bail Reform and What it Means for Your Municipality - 04/28/2017

The New Jersey League of Municipalities will be holding a Webinar titled "Bail Reform: What It Means for Your Municipality" on April 28, 2017 from 11:00am - 12:15pm. In early January 2017, New Jersey's Bail Reform and Speedy Trial Act went into effect.  While the reform is likely to be a net positive for criminal defendants, it has and will continue to add to costs to municipalities and counties, not the least of which is increased overtime.  The speakers will explain how law enforcement agencies are affected by the reform with respect to manpower, and solutions that have been used by certain departments to defray costs.  Finally, the speakers will examine the negotiability under PERC and other legal ramifications of proposed changes associated with amending practices to save taxpayer dollars while still complying with the bail reform law. CEUs have been approved. Additional information and registration is available online.
