Information-sharing agreements

Agencies establish information-sharing agreements that both protect people’s privacy and support the need to share, with relevant partners, the case-level results of screenings and assessments that inform key decisions related to pretrial release, diversion, discharge planning, and specialized pretrial and post-conviction community supervision. These agreements align with federal and state confidentiality regulations.
