About Pretrial Services Agency

The Northern District of California Pretrial Services Agency was established in 1987 with a mission to assist the Court in administering pretrial justice, protect the community, and to bring about positive change for individuals under supervision.

The U.S. Pretrial Services Agency assists the court with reducing unnecessary pretrial detention by providing timely, objective bail investigations which offer alternatives to detention. The agency is responsible for supervising defendants released on bail through the use of various monitoring strategies, and provides for connecting defendants with treatment services.
