The North Carolina Pretrial Services Association was started in 1996 in order to bring together Pretrial Services Programs across North Carolina to enhance our ability to serve the N.C. Court System. We are 30 Programs that provide pretrial services to 30 of the 100 counties in North Carolina. We provide pretrial screening services for the Court system and monitoring of released pretrial defendants. We are funded by local county government.
Pretrial officers work with North Carolina courts to collect defendant information and monitor for conditions of release.
We provide a cost efficient alternative to pretrial incarceration that ensures taxpayers are not overly paying for incarceration.
Pretrial officers provide comprehensive jail population management to North Carolina counties to keep jail costs in line.
