The Post Release Supervision Unit of Pretrial Services monitors defendants who are arrested for felony charges and who are released from jail on surety or Personal Bond. Pretrial Supervision assists in alleviating the jail population and allows defendants the opportunity to care for their families, remain employed, hire an attorney, and participate in their defense. Defendants assigned to the Post Release Supervision Unit will receive court date reminders as a means of assuring court appearance. Pretrial Supervision may include a requirement for Ignition Interlock, Portable Alcohol Monitor, SCRAM, or location monitoring. The goal of Pretrial Supervision is to assure defendants appear in court, do not pose a risk to the community, and comply with the conditions ordered as part of their Pretrial release.
