Court Watching Training

Peoria County Bond Court Watching Training on Saturday, July 30 at 11 AM.

Join Change Peoria for August court watching to prepare for the 2023 Pretrial Fairness Act, ending money bonds in IL. 

 

​Throughout August, we’ll watch the bond court to prepare for the 2023 Pretrial Fairness Act, which ends money bonds in Illinois. We will use information gathered during our court watching program in a report for advocacy efforts with legislators and court stakeholders 

 

Participants will receive training on: 

  • Bond hearing procedure,

  • Record observations from the bond court,

  • Accurately tracking court outcomes, and

  • Court terminology.

 

To take part effectively, you must attend one training and take at least two 2-3 hour shifts observing bond court in August. The training will occur virtually, but all court watching will happen in person. 

 

Join Change Peoria and our friends at Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice and Chicago Appleseed Center for Fair Courts on Saturday, July 30 at 11 AM for bond court watching training.
