The Pennsylvania Pretrial Services Association (PPSA) would like to take this opportunity to reach out to our colleagues and communicate how an effective Pretrial Services program can make a difference in your County. Pretrial services programs are a vital part of the criminal justice system and can provide a positive impact by assisting in reducing jail overcrowding, providing information and assessments to the Courts to be used when setting bail, supervising released pretrial status defendants, and identifying special needs of the defendants (drug, alcohol, mental health) and providing appropriate referrals for services.

The Board of Directors of PPSA is dedicated to promoting the establishment of Pretrial Services programs, as well as providing technical support to enhance existing programs. Your support in the form of a membership to PPSA entitles you access to Pretrial Executives to consult with information on pretrial services including the formation or expansion of your Pretrial Services program, reduced registration rates for our annual conference in State College, reduced membership rate to the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies (NAPSA), a membership certificate and our newsletter.
