PTI (Pretrial Intervention) is a program designed for first-time offenders of non-violent crimes. This program consists of counseling, education, community service work, and other requirements that the participant must complete. Successful completion of this program will allow for the arrest record to be destroyed. The goal of this program is to give first-time offenders a second chance. Offenders may participate in this program only one time.
