The Pretrial Services Program has two primary goals: provide accurate, timely, neutral information regarding arrestees to judges so they can make informed release decisions and promote public safety by ensuring appearance in court and compliance with release conditions established by judges for certain defendants.
The Pretrial Assessment unit is located at the Volusia County Branch Jail. Pretrial Assessment staff compiles criminal history records of arrestees appearing before judges at First Appearance hearings; conducts interviews and investigations of arrestees to aid in the determination of release conditions; determines eligibility for Notice to Appear release by jail officials; provides support to judges presiding at First Appearance hearings; and processes release orders issued by judges. Since First Appearance hearings are conducted 365 days per year, the Pretrial Assessment unit also operates every day of the year.
The Pretrial Supervision unit has offices in Daytona Beach and DeLand. Pretrial Supervision staff provides varying levels of supervision to defendants released by judges into the Pretrial Supervision program. Levels of supervision range from telephonic contact to house arrest/electronic monitoring. Pretrial Supervision staff monitors compliance with release conditions established by the Court and ensures the appearance of program participants at required court proceedings.
