    • Pre-Trial Release – a component of the Alternatives to Incarceration Program. Recently incarcerated individuals are interviewed by the ATI Worker and assessed, using a standardized instrument, for their likelihood to appear in court. The results of this interview and assessment are sent to the court of jurisdiction for the judge to use in reconsidering the inmate for Release on Recognizance (ROR) or Release Under Supervision (RUS).
    • Community Service – a component of the Alternatives to Incarceration Program. The courts order a defendant to perform a specified number of community service hours in lieu of jail time. The ATI Worker develops and monitors appropriate community service work sites and matches up defendants to these work sites, monitoring their compliance and successful completion.
