The Calvert County Detention Center's supervised Pre-Trial Release Program gives offenders who present a minimal danger to the community, and who are charged with a crime that may be adjudicated by the Courts, the opportunity to be released from incarceration. The program expands the number of release options available to the Courts and reduces unnecessary pre-trial detention.
An offender may enter the program only upon the authorization of theCourts or as a result of an order from a judge. Offenders may spend a period of confinement within the detention center prior to entering the program. This gives the Pre-Trial Release Program staff time to conduct interviews and process the offenders to determine their eligibility for placement on the program. During the processing phase, the staff will determine the level of supervision needed for the offender. The level of supervision may include, but not limited to, electronic monitoring coupled with extensive treatment tailored to the offender's needs.
If authorized by the Courts, work release is an option for offenders serving their sentence on the Pre-Trial Release Program. The offender will be responsible for adhering to all rules and regulations provided under the Work Release Program and any additional rules and regulations set by the Pre-Trial Release Program staff.
