What is PTI?
PTI is an abbreviation of the Pre-Trial Intervention Program. Defendants may only enroll in this program upon the recommendation of the court, officer, victim and attorney involved. There is an enrollment fee and participants are required to attend counseling sessions and complete a prescribed amount of community service hours. Successful completion of this program qualifies the participant to have an expungement of the criminal record for which the participant was enrolled. The Magistrate’s court completes the applications and forwards it to the PTI office for completion. You may contact any office for further details or contact the Pre-Trial Intervention Office in the Solicitor’s Office.
