In Richmond, once you have been arrested, you will be evaluated by the Division of Adult Pretrial Services. This office advises the courts regarding if bail should be given and how much it should be set at. They will first review the police records, called a screening process, and then interview the defendant at the Richmond City Jail Annex, also known as Lock Up.

Based on the police records and the interview they will create a Risk Assessment report and their recommendations for bail. We cannot express how important it is that the defendant be on their best behavior and put on a good impressions during this interview. They can recommend that you stay locked up, but they can also recommend that you be released on your own recognizance with no bail required at all.
