The National Pretrial Reporting Program (NPRP, renamed State Court Processing Statistics) series compiles information on criminal justice processing of persons charged with felony offenses in state courts, with particular attention to pretrial release and detention. NPRP was historically collected prospectively, following case filings for twenty-four (homicides) or twelve months (all other cases). Data were collected from courts and criminal justice agencies in 40 of the 75 largest urban counties. Updating NPRP is essential for understanding the ways in which state courts process felony defendants. The 2020 NPRP will leverage improvements in court and justice agency computerized case management systems to collect the data. BJS would also like to collect data that is nationally representative rather than using the historical largest urban areas model.
