PreTrial Services adheres to the evidence based Nevada Pretrial Risk Assessment (NPRA) and practices that relate to the NPRA, and supervision with the goal of protecting public safety while minimizing the failure to appear and reoffend.
Pretrial Services Intensive Supervision
PreTrial Services Intensive Supervision Unit is located on the second (2nd) floor of the Regional Justice Center. When a person is released they are ordered to report on the date listed on the Release Agreement that was signed and given at the time of release from custody.
New enrollments are processed Monday – Friday, between 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Required check-in days will be assigned at that time.
An automated system will send reminders via text of upcoming check-in’s. DO NOT rely solely on this system; it is only a helpful tool, and each individual assigned to the programmust remember their obligation to the court. Special conditions may be ordered by the Judge.
Intensive Supervision is being discontinued as an available monitoring option. Instead, there will be a Pretrial Compliance Unit (PCU) that contains four (4) levels of pretrial compliance monitoring.
Pretrial Compliance Unit (PCU)
The Pretrial Compliance Unit (PCU) will offer a compliance component for judges to monitor pretrial defendants to ensure compliance with conditions of release. Defendants will be required to report on a regular basis. Progress and compliance with conditions of release will be continually evaluated and reported to the court and parties by the PCU staff.
Eligible defendants shall be released to the PCU as ordered by the judicial officer. The PCU staff shall then interview the defendant to obtain and document basic information, including the following:
- Address where the offender will reside, if applicable.
- Reference, including phone number and address. If an offender cannot provide a reference, the release can still be authorized. Every effort shall be made to collect reference information. If information cannot be provided, the PCU staff shall document that the information is not available.
- In DV cases where there is a no contact order in place, the PCU staff shall confirm that the defendant is not returning to an address with the victim; this information shall be documented.
- Defendants revoked from PCU on a previous case within the past year shall be reviewed by the supervisor or his/her designee for release approval.
COMPLIANCE LEVELS AND REQUIREMENTS
All defendants accepted will be assigned a compliance level as ordered by a judicial official. The program offers tiered options with a continuum of intensity and restrictions based on the objective risk of the defendant. Compliance requirements for the offender are noted below. The PCU staff shall monitor compliance with these expectations:
|Pretrial Compliance Unit: Presumptive Monitoring Levels|
|PCU Level||Report to PCUwithin 48 hours||AfterEach Court Date Check-in||Check-ins

Corrisoft technology allows the PCU to ensure compliance for a broader population. An example of how the Corrisoft software can be utilized is outlined below.
The AIR Check-In App has the ability to do Check-Ins utilizing the following methods:
- Scheduled Check-In –Compliance Officer or Corrisoft can load Scheduled Check-In requests to occur on a regular cadence collecting a GPS Point.
- Random Check-In –Compliance Officer or Corrisoft can set up Random Check-In’s to occur over a period of time (for a week or a month), during specified hours (example: 6AM to 9PM) and any amount (example: 4 Check-In’s for a Month).
