San Diego County Pretrial Services has seen it all. From its original multi-agency oversight to present-day operation under the County Sheriff, SDPTS has overcome significant hurdles; including a time in recent years when lack of funding eliminated pretrial services altogether – compromising community safety and individual wellbeing across the county. Fortunately, the Sheriff’s Department has experience implementing Evidence-Based Assessment programs for booking and release, and were confident that those programs could be expanded to pretrial services. In 2016, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department established their new Pretrial Unit and began working with the DA, PD, and Superior Court to implement Pretrial 2.0 countywide.
