Bail Reform has been a hot topic throughout the United States. However, in the regions that have completely eliminated commercial bondsmen, such as Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, Oregon and Baltimore, Maryland. These areas are relying mostly on pre-trial risk assessment software to decide whether or not an arrestee should be eligible for bail.
In Palm Beach County, the judicial system uses a bond schedule which assigns a bail amount based on the type of crime committed. Magistrate judges use judicial discretion in setting and adjusting bail amounts. Judges also have the ability to release inmates on Own Recognizance (OR) and / or Supervised Own Recognizance (SOR).
