PRETRIAL SERVICES INVESTIGATIONS POLICY

Certain constitutional rights and laws provide the framework for pretrial services. They are as follows:


PRETRIAL SERVICES SUPERVISION POLICY

As the component of the federal judiciary responsible for community corrections, the Federal Probation and Pretrial Services system is fundamentally committed to providing protection to the public and assisting in the fair administration of justice. While maintaining the presumption of innocence and working under the guidance of the court, pretrial services seeks to effectively supervise persons released to its custody and thereby promote public safety, facilitate the judicial process and reduce unnecessary detention.

Pretrial services is the front door to the federal criminal justice system and has a unique opportunity to lay the foundation for each defendantís success, not only during the period of pretrial services supervision, but even beyond that time. Officers strive to work with each defendant in such a manner that this contact with the criminal justice system will be his/her last and so prevent the front door of the system from becoming a revolving door. While pretrial services has no authority over a defendant beyond the period of pretrial services supervision, it can help to lay the foundation for success by:

1. Adhering to the highest standards of professional ethics;
2. Employing effective supervision practices; and
3. Creating effective partnerships with other criminal justice components and with the community.
