This program began operation in 1985. This project provides all criminal court clients, initially unable to post bail, the opportunity to be interviewed to determine eligibility for release from jail. The interview process objectively assesses the defendant's qualifications for release through release on his/her own recognizance (ROR), or, where the court determines the risk of absconding to be greater, through release under supervision (RUS). Program operations include screening, eligibility determinations, monitoring functions, where appropriate, and court notification of those who fail to satisfy release requirements.

This program began operation in January of 2018.  The primary goal centers around the re-introduction of Electronic Monitoring as a viable option for defendants that are moderate to high risk of recidivism that otherwise would not be eligible for pretrial release and would remain in jail while their case remains pending
