Pretrial Supervision   

Pretrial Supervision is granted in specific cases pending sentencing. Individuals placed on Pretrial Supervision are required but not limited to the following:

• Must contact their Pretrial Supervision Officer within 24 hours of release from custody. Do not confuse the Pretrial Supervision Officer with a Bail Bondsman, they perform different functions in the legal system.

• May not own or possess firearms, ingest alcohol/illegal drugs, or frequent places that serve alcohol for consumption. Other restrictions may apply.

• Must not violate the laws of this state or any other jurisdiction.

• Continue to be supervised until the case is resolved or the Judge releases you from supervision.

• **CAM Officers, Pretrial Supervision Officers, and Bail Bondsmen are all different officers. Make sure you contact parties that are required per your Pretrial Conditions.


You are required to attend all court hearings, unless otherwise notified. You should arrive at the court house at least 30 minutes prior to your court hearing in case the security line is long.

You cannot bring any weapons into the court house.

When you enter the courtroom, you should turn off your cell phone.

After court, if you do not have an appointment with your Pretrial Supervision Officer, you must contact him/her for a court update. If you cannot reach your officer, leave a message with your name, your case number, when your next court hearing is, and any changes in your bond conditions.
