Pretrial Investigations and Supervision


The purpose of the Pretrial Services Unit is to allow for the safe release of defendants while awaiting trial, monitor defendants and specific conditions of their pretrial release to increase public safety, reduce failure to appear rates, and assist with the orderly administration of the justice system.

The Unit consists of two teams: Pretrial Investigations and Pretrial Supervision.

Pretrial Investigation Officers interview defendants incarcerated in the DuPage County Jail, complete a risk assessment, and prepare reports to assist the Court in making a decision for pretrial release and conditions of release.

Pretrial Supervision Officers supervise defendants released from jail while they are awaiting trial. They monitor court ordered conditions, including Global Positioning System (GPS).
