  • S. Dennis Hunter

The Salt Lake County Pre-Trial Services Program is an integral part of the Salt Lake County Criminal Justice System. As an agency, it provides secure, rehabilitation-oriented alternatives to incarceration for a variety of defendents awaiting court disposition of their criminal charges. Presently, the program consists of three working components which provide several types of jail release, individual case monitoring, drug, alcohol and mental health treatment referral, and information reporting for the courts. The Salt Lake County TASC project is one of these Pre-Trial Services components, and will be discussed in detail, with the entire program, in this presentation.
