The Pretrial Services Agency for the Eastern District of Michigan is the Federal agency responsible for gathering information about newly arrested defendants and preparing a detailed investigative pretrial report with recommendations considered by the Court in deciding pretrial release options or detention. We recommend the least restrictive conditions of release that promote public safety and ensure future court appearances. We facilitate the fair administration of justice, strive to reduce unnecessary detention and assist in navigating individuals through the federal judicial system. Pretrial services officers supervise defendants released pending trial and assist in maximizing defendant success during the period of pretrial supervision.
