Community Justice Services

Douglas County Community Justice Services operates out of the Eighteenth Judicial District in the Robert A. Christensen Justice Center.

The CJS division is currently composed of five programs:

  • Community Service – or Alternative Service/Useful Public Service, is designed to help alleviate jail crowding by offering the District and County courts an alternate sentencing option.
  • Electronic In-home Detention – an alternative to incarceration sentencing options made available to the District/County courts of Douglas County.
  • Pretrial Intake –  operates out of the Douglas County Sheriff’s detention facility and is responsible for interviewing defendants booked into the jail, contacting the defendant’s family/friends to verify information, and preparing bond reports that include the defendant’s criminal history and social factors.
  • Pretrial Release Supervision – designed to ease jail overcrowding by supervising defendants who are released from jail during the pretrial stage of their criminal case.
  • Multiple Offender Program – The DCMOP consists of four phases that spans a minimum of 365 days.
