Pride Integrated Services, Inc.
Part of the Community

Pride is committed to the communities we serve and has been providing criminal justice services for more than 40 years. Pride is the "oldest non-secular private probation agency in the United States".

As a non-profit organization, Pride's goal is not for a financial return on our investment. Instead, we seek a more tangible return in our communities.

All Pride Probation offices are user-fee based

Pride does not rely on any outside or governmental financial support for the provision of services. All operating expenses are met by the collection of fees for services form the probation clients. As agents of the Court, Pride collects fines, fees, court costs and restitution. All these funds are distributed to the various agencies or individuals without cost to the recipient. In addition to making exceptional financial sense for any jurisdiction, Pride is considered a leader in the development of innovative and effective sentencing options for the criminal justice population.

Pre-Trial Intervention / Deferred Prosecution

Also known as PTI, this type of program is coordinated through the County or municipal prosecutors with the acceptance of the local Judiciary. Through this program, a defendant (usually a first time offender) is offered the opportunity to enter into a specialized and closely monitored agreement that is designed to facilitate behavioral change and reduce the risk of recidivism. Successful completion of the PTI agreement generally leads to the original charges being dropped.

Behavior Choice and Change 

This four hour course is designed for non-violent misdemeanor offenders. It challenges participants to assess their thoughts and beliefs on behaviors that led to criminal activity. The course outlines a plan for changing attitudes as a model for changing behaviors.
