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 alternative 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 span a minimum of 365 days.
