What is Pretrial Services?

Pretrial Services perform two important functions in the administration of criminal justice. First, they gather and present information about newly arrested defendants and about available release options for use by the Court in deciding what release conditions are to be set for defendants’ release on bond. Second, they supervise the defendants released from custody by monitoring their compliance with release conditions and by helping to ensure they appear for future court dates.
