    About Pretrial Services

    Judge Gavel and Handcuffs

    Tarrant County Pretrial Services provides an alternative to incarceration that allows arrested defendants to be released from jail while awaiting disposition of their criminal charges.  The program is designed to assist individuals charged with a Class A or B misdemeanor or non-violent felony, who live in Tarrant County -- or the surrounding counties -- to obtain jail release on personal bond.  Qualified individuals arrested and detained in jail on a criminal offense may be released for $20, or three percent of the bond amount, whichever is greater.

    Contact the Pretrial Services Office when you, a friend, or family member is in jail. We may be your alternative to incarceration.
