What is pretrial supervision?
For certain cases the Court may allow the defendant to be released without bail or with a reduced amount of bail with an understanding that they will be subject to pretrial supervision. Specific conditions of their release are pronounced, including but not limited to the following: Abstinence of drugs and alcohol, submit to random testing to verify compliance, Electronic Home Monitoring, house arrest, and/or no have contact with the alleged victim. Upon release from jail, the defendant must report immediately to the probation department to check in. A probation officer or surveillance officer reviews the conditions of release to insure there is a clear understanding of the expectations. The role of the probation officer and/or surveillance officer is to both monitor compliance with the release conditions and to assist the defendant in taking any steps in engaging in any relevant assessments, programming or interventions.
