In May 2014, Governor's Commission to Reform Maryland's the Pretrial System was initiated by the Governor (Executive Order 01.01.2014.09).
To ensure that Maryland operates an equitable and efficient statewide pretrail program, the Commission examined Maryland's pretrial system, as well as those of other states and municipalities. It considered methods to reduce the amount of time that low-risk arrestees are detained, and other methods of pretrial diversion; and evaluated objective, validated risk assessment tools for these purposes.
In December 2014, the Commission submitted its final report to the Governor, Senate President, and House Speaker.
