Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit or for-profit organization, IHE, local or tribal government unit, or faith-based or community organization to collect data related to the processing of criminal court cases. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The NPRP provides information on the criminal case processing of defendants charged with felony offenses in state criminal courts, with a particular focus on pre-trial release and detention. This program furthers the Department's mission by increasing transparency, collaboration, and reporting of state criminal courts.

Goal: The NPRP seeks to examine the capacity of the 200 largest counties in the United States to provide data on pre-trial releases and detentions and to collect pre-trial data from all or a sample of the counties.

  • Objective 1: Review previous NPRP and SCPS collections (hereafter referred to as the NPRP) to determine the critical data needs and the criminal justice agencies able to provide the data. 
  • Objective 2: Assess and determine the availability of the critical data elements for the NPRP collection and identify the best methods and modes for collecting NPRP data.
  • Objective 3: Test the capacity of 10 of the largest counties to provide NPRP data in 2015 and 2020, with particular attention to any changes in bail practices or policies during that 5-year period.
  • Objective 4: Expand the NPRP sampling frame to provide statistics beyond the 75 largest counties. 
  • Objective 5: Implement the NPRP data collection. Assist BJS in the collection, construction, merging, and analysis of the data files.
