About Us

The U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services Office, District of Maine, serves the entire State from offices in Portland and in Bangor. All Probation and Pretrial Services Office employees are federal employees and are part of the Judiciary, The U.S. Courts. 

We manage defendants on behalf of the Courts during the Pretrial process, write extensive background reports on individuals after being arrested and before being sentenced and Supervise Offenders once they have been released from Jail or sentenced to Probation. We currently have in excess of 500 active cases throughout the state.

More detailed information can be found on the Federal Courts National Website.

We "Strive to Change Lives", and all of our officers work hard every day to keep our communities safe and to help defendants and offenders make better choices.
