Services For Probation & Pre-trial Departments

We Build Customized Programs That Fit Your Department

Probation & pre-trial departments are often saddled with many responsibilities when it comes to clients such as pre-sentence investigation and reporting, required pre-trial programming, and monitoring any additional offenses the client may have collected. With so many functions that need to be performed, sometimes these departments need a little help from companies like TCS.

There are many tools in the TCS arsenal that can help departments monitor and assess clients to help with pre- and post-sentencing determinations. Using the services, technologies and processes available through TCS, we can assist departments in managing their caseloads while conserving the limited resources for the more time-consuming clients.

How It Works

  1. We work with the department to define imperatives and goals for each type of client
  2. Set criteria for each type of program so we consistently capture the right clients and offenses
  3. Create monitoring and testing protocols that fit with each type of client and offense
  4. Setup a simple referral program to make selecting programs easy for department staff
  5. Identify the proper follow up for infractions, violations and regular summary reporting

After the referral is placed, TCS does the rest. Our staff works with the client to get installed as soon as possible—being mindful of any time requirements set by the department. Our customized reporting options means that the department can get enrollment verification, violation reports, and periodic summaries of each clients’ compliance and behavior.

Start Today

TCS can start services for your clients as early as today. The first step is to fill out an enrollment form online. From there, TCS will:

  1. Contact the client to setup a convenient appointment to begin the monitoring program
  2. Handle collections for services, ensuring that we always have a cushion to continue services
  3. Enroll and orientate the client as to their responsibilities while enrolled in the program

Client Focused

Going forward, TCS handles any potential needs from the client or related to the technology or services used. TCS has staff ready to:

  • Complete any routine maintenance or visual inspections of the client and equipment
  • Report any issues to the department as outlined in the program guidelines
  • Provide any summary reports to the department in the intervals required
  • Remove the client from the program based on the department guidelines

An Extension Of Your Department

TCS becomes an extension of the probation department—fulfilling required monitoring needs that the department may not necessarily be equipped to provide. There are a number of service options as well that can provide for more involvement from the department including ways to lower costs to the clients. TCS offers multiple service levels and can even customize services to fit the needs of each department, including building an indigent fund to help clients pay for required monitoring and providing on-site services on specified court hearing days.
