QUEENS SUPERVISED RELEASE PROGRAM
The program, which operates during the day and night court in Queens, screens targeted defendants for release at criminal court arraignment, subject to specific conditions including maintaining face-to-face and telephone contact with the program, participating in a an assessment process to identify needs such as substance abuse and mental health, and agreeing to program monitoring of court appearances and re-arrests.
This is a great opportunity for a dynamic individual with experience as an Pretrial Associate looking to continue service within Court Operations by applying their knowledge of the arrest to arraignment process as a Court Rep.
A second related function of the Court Representative is to appear on subsequent court dates and provide updates on participants’ compliance with supervised release conditions on the record as required. The Court Representative then reports back to the program on the court appearance, including legal outcomes, reactions to the reports, and any changes in the release conditions.
