The role of the Pretrial Services Intake Staff is to interview defendants to determine risk, investigate bond applications, and make recommendations of conditions to the Judge or Magistrate regarding release on Personal Recognizance Bond (PR Bond). We also determine eligibility for Indigent Defense Attorney Appointment System (IDAAS) and assign a Court Appointed Attorney.
Pretrial Services staff provide information to the public regarding the status of defendants who were interviewed for PR Bond.
