Whereas, it appearing to the Court that the Canyon County Sheriff is desirous of providing pre-trial release services to the Court and believes that the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office is better able to administer a county pre-trial services program;
Whereas, it appearing to the Court that a pre-trial services program administered by the Canyon County Sheriff will include the collection and presentation of information to the Court for use in making pre-trial release decisions, will include the monitoring of compliance with conditions of release imposed by the Court upon persons pending adjudication, and will promptly inform the Court of apparent violations of pre-trial release conditions or arrests of persons released pending trial;
Whereas, it appearing that any pre-trial services program administered by the Canyon County Sheriff will not include and cannot include a delegation of the Court’s authority to determine bail for a person accused of a crime, to order the release of such person on his or her recognizance, or to impose reasonable terms, conditions, and prohibitions on any such release;
