Project Remand, a private, non-profit organization, has provided a comprehensive program of adult pretrial services since 1973. Project Remand helps Ramsey County reduce jail population pressures by offering alternatives to traditional detention while promoting public protection and lawful behavior through pretrial services.
Our mission is to provide safe and effective alternatives to traditional detention and prosecution through the delivery of pretrial services.
Since our inception, over 450,000 jail screenings/bail evaluations have been completed, while the number of individuals considered for conditional release or diversion has increased nearly ten-fold.
Project Remand works cooperatively with the Ramsey County District Court in making release recommendations. The balance between public protection and our constitutional principle of “innocent until proven guilty” is critical, thus the community’s safety is carefully weighed against the rights of the accused.
