The Pretrial Services Program supports community safety efforts by providing accurate information to the judicial system for release decisions and provides structured supervision of defendants while on a supervised Personal Recognizance Bond (PR Bond). The Pretrial Services Program accomplishes this in several ways:
- Assess individuals who may qualify for PR Bonds.
- Provide information to the judicial officers to support their release or detain decision-making.
- Provide compliance monitoring to individuals who have been released from custody on a PR Bond with conditions that may include drug and alcohol testing. Program staff provide supervision to help ensure the individual attends scheduled court appearances and not re-offend while out on PR Bond.
