Pretrial Services provide supportive resources and referrals, monitor compliance while on release, and report to the court. For legal questions pertaining to the details of a case, please contact your attorney.

The Pretrial phase of a criminal case occurs after a person is arraigned and during the time the person is awaiting trial. The goal of Pretrial Services is to assist the court to determine if someone charged with a crime can be released into the community while the case is pending. Pretrial Release is monitored until disposition of the case.

Pretrial Services allows individuals charged with crimes a reasonable opportunity to remain employed, in school, continue health services and remain out of custody, while agreeing to terms and conditions ordered by the court. These conditions include the expectation that they will attend all future hearings. 

Pretrial Services staff consist of Release Assistance Officers (RAOs) who make recommendations to the court regarding release and conditions based on a person's criminal history and other factors such as ties to the community. The RAO provides supervision by monitoring an individual’s release conditions to assure court attendance and compliance with conditions of the court order. They can also connect individuals with resources in the community that will assist in maintaining stability and helping them to move forward with their case.

Any violation of release conditions may result in a warrant and revocation of release. That could mean being held in custody until the case is resolved. Contempt of Court Charges may also be filed for violation of a release condition. Any questions regarding the conditions of release may be directed to the Pretrial Services office.​

Pretrial Contact Information

Main Number: 971-233-3524

Clackamas County Circuit Court: 807 Main St, Oregon City, OR 97045​ 
The Pretrial Services check-in is located in the Records Center (Room 12).

​The court is unable to provide parking for those coming to the court. Parking is very limited in the area around the courthouse and you are encouraged to ride the bus. There is parking at the Municipal Parking Lot at 1220 Main Street (between 13th Street and Main Street), that is approximately five blocks from the courthouse. Please go to the Oregon City Downtown Parking Information​ page for additional information. Please allow extra time for finding parking.

Free Parking off High Street/Municipal Elevator
Another option is parking off of High Street and taking the Municipal Elevator, which is free, down to the courthouse. Any street parking up there that is not marked (near the school – St. John the Apostle) is an option.

Oregon City Parking Lot
The Oregon City parking lot is $5/day. The metered options in the downtown area are not a good idea for a full day of work. When the meter is up (2 or 4 hours), you are required to move your car as opposed to just plugging the meter again.

Oregon City Transit Center is located at 1035 Main St, Oregon City

Trimet’s trip planner can help you plan your route.
