Pretrial Release

The pretrial release program provides Arapahoe County Courts and the 18th Judicial District Courts with reports to make informed decisions on bond, and also supervises defendants as a condition of bond.

Pretrial Officers


Pretrial officers interview select detainees in the Arapahoe County Detention Center regarding their community and social ties. Officers then prepare bond reports for the court, including criminal history and background information, to help the judge make an informed decision on bond.

A judge may order a defendant to pretrial supervision as a condition of bond. Supervision can include monitored sobriety or electronic monitoring, in-person and telephone contact and mental health / substance abuse referrals.
