Probation supervision is the main program provided by the Pierce County District Court Probation Division in its support of the judges of Pierce County District Court. Supervision involves interviewing, referral and reporting of offender compliance with the conditions ordered by the court for adjudicated cases.
Types of Cases We Supervise
The primary cases involve driving under the influence or domestic violence. Other cases supervised represent a variety of misdemeanor offenses, which include criminal trespass, non-domestic violence assault, possession of drug paraphernalia, minor in possession and misdemeanor-level sex offenses.
Pre-Trial Supervision Services
Pierce County District Court Probation provides supervision of defendants who have not yet been adjudicated (a final judgement by the court has not been made) and have been released with specific conditions as ordered by the court. The specific conditions of supervision are selected by the judge.
Interstate Compact (ICAOS) Program
In cooperation with the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS), probation officers are trained to transfer eligible defendants for ICAOS out of state. More information is available on the ICAOS website.
