Kforce has a client in search of a FTA Tool Senior Project Manager in Brooklyn, New York (NY).Scope of services:As part of the eArraignment packet, CJA (New York City Criminal Justice Agency) provides a Failure To Appear (FTA) risk score that is manually calculated by employing an algorithm that has proven to be outdated. FTA determines the likelihood of a defendant to appear for their next court date. Due to a lack of confidence, judges ignore the score at arraignment thus putting defendants in jail while awaiting trial which increases the daily jail population by an estimated 700 inmates.
