What are the Benefits of an Arrest Alert System?

An arrest alert immediately notifies prosecutors of priority arrests involving a specific individual, charge, or location. This information can assist the prosecutor to:
  1. Decide whether bringing enhanced charges is appropriate;
  2. Draft appropriate pretrial release or detention requests;
  3. Make appropriate sentencing recommendations;
  4. Alert the court about a new arrest;
  5. Identify violations of curfews and other applicable conditions;
  6. Receive timely notice of debriefing opportunities;
  7. Use other opportunities for the gathering of intelligence; and
  8. Improve the investigation of cold cases.
