Formal Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) Program
Participants are expected to live by certain conditions and to complete various requirements. TCSA’s role in this process is to monitor and document compliance, along with documenting completion of various requirements. TCSA is vested in the success of each participant and will provide processes to assist along the way.
Depending on the specific details of the monitoring agreement, Participants may be required to report at minimum electronically on monthly basis. In-office reporting may be required as indicated by the specific supervision program. Examples of when a participant may be required to report in-office are:
- To undergo a random drug and alcohol test
- Have a need for visual inspection of an ignition interlock device
- Receive support as related to compliance

TCSA provides courtesy supervision for participants who wish to move to Texas and have requirements to be supervised on a criminal case from another state. This is often accomplished through what is know as an Interstate Compact Agreement between states. Although, there are certain circumstances in which a probationer would not be accepted by a Texas Community Supervision and Corrections Department for Supervision due to lack of eligibility. Thus, not being eligible to leave their State of Conviction and move to Texas. A common reason is the level of offense (misdemeanor/felony) and/or time remaining on supervision in the originating state.
TCSA has been approved by many jurisdictions to provide courtesy supervision for participants requesting to move to Texas after being sentenced to supervision in another state. These cases have included:
- County and District probated cases
- federal pre-trail cases
- Pre-Trial intervention/bond supervision cases
If you are seeking information about Courtesy Supervision, please send an email inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
TCSA will work with the originating jurisdiction to provide all necessary information on our processes.
