Pretrial Services Unit
The purpose of the Pretrial Services Unit is to allow for the safe release of defendants on bond while awaiting trial, monitor defendants and specific conditions of their bonds 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 Bond Investigations and Pretrial Bond Supervision.
Pretrial Investigation Officers interview defendants incarcerated in the DuPage County Jail and prepare bond reports for the court to assist in the setting of bail and bond conditions.
Pretrial Supervision Officers supervise defendants released on bond while awaiting trial. They monitor any court ordered conditions of bond, including Global Positioning System (GPS) and Radio Frequency (RF) electronic monitoring equipment.
