Community Corrections Services - Pretrial Services Frequently Asked Questions

What is Pretrial Services?             

The purpose of Pretrial Services is to assist Judicial Officers in discharging their duties. Such programs are intended to provide better information and services for use by Judicial Officers. The information helps in determining the risk to public safety and the assurance of appearance of persons age 18 or over or persons under the age of 18 who have been transferred for trial as adults held in custody and charged with an offense, other than an offense punishable by death, who are pending trial or hearing.

What are the goals of Pretrial Services?  

The goals are to assist Judicial Officers in making bail release decisions or in reviewing and amending the conditions of release on bail at subsequent hearings.   In addition, Pretrial Services provide supervision of defendants placed in the custody of the program and assure compliance with the conditions of release imposed by Judicial Officers.

What are the program objectives of Pretrial Services?  

  • To expedite defendant release and improve judicial decision making through the provision of defendant background information and recommendations for use by Judicial Officers in determining or reconsidering the risk to public safety and appearance in court, pending trial.
  • To reduce failure to appears in court and improve public safety by providing custody and supervision to pretrial defendants.
  • To alleviate jail overcrowding, thereby reducing jail operating costs and future capacity needs of local jails, caused by unnecessary detention of certain pretrial defendants.
