Presentence and Assessment Unit
By offering assessments through a specialized on-site team, Criminal Justice Services provides clients with a one-stop convenience and the opportunity to obtain more than one assessment without traveling to various community providers.
Accurate and timely assessments allow for efficient allocation of resources and better outcomes for defendants. There are two important time points where the Assessment Unit provides vital services: Pre-Sentence Reports and prior to Probation Supervision.
Assessments and Presentence Reports are vital components of the Criminal Justice System. The effective use of assessments allows limited tax payer dollars to be effectively funneled to the clients who will receive the greatest benefit. Presentence Reports provide judges with relevant client information for consideration when making sentencing decisions.
