"The mission of the Division is to serve the citizens of Maryland through booking, processing and managing the care, custody and control of Baltimore City arrestees.
The Division of Pretrial Detention and Services has jurisdiction over three agencies:
- The Baltimore Central Booking and Intake Center (BCBIC)
- The Baltimore City Detention Center (BCDC)
- The Pretrial Release Service Program (PRSP)
The Baltimore Central Booking and Intake Center opened in November 1995 as the central location for booking and processing arrestees in Baltimore City. Nearly 100,000 arrestees are processed yearly in this internationally recognized center.
The Baltimore City Detention Center is one of the largest pretrial detention facilities in the United States and the largest in Maryland. More than 40,000 inmates are taken into custody at this Center each year. An array of mental and physical health, social, educational, recreational and spiritual programs are provided for the inmates.
The Pretrial Release Service Program provides pretrial services to an average of 1,250 clients through four primary functions: investigative, case management, case diversion and detention. The program assesses criminal history and personal data on Baltimore City arrestees, provides community supervision to defendants awaiting trial and provides risk classification for bail review."
