The Pretrial Services Program supports community safety efforts by providing accurate information to the judicial system for release decisions and structured supervision of defendants while on pretrial status. The Pretrial Services Program accomplishes this in two primary ways:
a. Interview and investigate individuals who qualify for Personal Recognizance Bonds (PR Bonds) and provide the information to the judicial officers who make a determination to release the individual from custody. Program staff provide supervision to help ensure the individual attends scheduled court appearances and does not re-offend while out on PR Bond.
b. Provide compliance monitoring to individuals who have been released from custody on PR Bond with conditions that may include drug and alcohol testing.
