Pretrial Justice Task Force to host two public forums to discuss draft report and recommendations

Posted By Ryan Purcell, Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Before a Kansas Supreme Court task force charged with examining pretrial detention practices delivers its final report to the court, it will offer two public forums to answer questions about its findings, recommendations, and proposed best practices.

Chief Judge Karen Arnold-Burger, the Kansas Court of Appeals judge who chairs the task force, said the forums are to answer questions and to discover whether there are concerns not already addressed during the two-year project.

“The full task force met quarterly and subcommittees more frequently to work through the mountains of information available on this topic,” Arnold-Burger said. “We also invited every stakeholder group we thought might be interested to ensure we heard all viewpoints. The public forums are to hear from anyone who might want to weigh in before we finalize our report.”

Public forums September 9 and 24

The forums will be conducted virtually on Zoom and participants are encouraged to submit questions ahead of time. Questions may also be asked by chat during the events.

People who want to participate in a forum must register ahead of time.
