PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – The Prince William County Office of Criminal Justice Services, Department of Corrections Adult Probation and Parole, Department of Juvenile Justice Court Services Unit and Juvenile Pretrial Services will observe Pretrial, Probation and Parole Supervision Week, July 21-27, 2013. The week is observed nationally each year to recognize the work that pretrial, probation, parole and community supervision professionals do in their ongoing effort to support public safety. The following agencies serve the Thirty-First Judicial District which includes the County of Prince William and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park.
The Prince William County Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) provides community supervision and services to misdemeanants and some non-violent felons as an alternative to incarceration. The Pretrial Program provides information to the courts on newly arrested defendants, which may then be used in making pretrial release decisions.
Adult Probation and Parole Services provides professional supervision of offenders in the community under conditions of probation or parole and other special conditions set by the Court or the Parole Board.
The Department of Juvenile Justice Court Services Unit provides support for community programs and services, community supervision and case management, and custody and care of committed juveniles.
Juvenile Pretrial Supervision is a program of intensive home supervision of adolescents who would otherwise be held in secure detention. The goals of the program are to ensure that the juvenile is available for Court and to prevent further delinquency.
Combined, these programs provide supervision for over 4,500 offenders/defendants in Prince William County. For more information on these programs, contact Steve Austin at (703) 792-6065 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
