Bucks County Adult Probation and Parole

Intake Unit

The Intake Unit was established on November 1, 1993 and is located on the 1st floor of the Bucks County Justice Center. The primary responsibility of the Unit is to conduct the initial interview with persons placed on county probation or parole from the Bucks County Court. This initial interview is called an Intake Instruction. At the time of intake instruction, cases are directly input into the Department's existing automation system. As a result, the amount of time required to open a case and have it ready for assignment to a General Supervision PO has been dramatically reduced while also improving the overall quality of information received from clients and provided to clients at the point of the intake instruction.

Additionally, the Intake Unit is charged with the following responsibilities:

  • Monitoring most ungraded misdemeander DUI cases
  • Supervising Out-of-County problem cases (people convicted of crimes in Bucks County who live outside Bucks County)
  • Conducting Out-of-County Pre-Parole Investigations
  • Coordination of all Violation of Probation/Parole Hearings
  • Bench Warrant hearings for probation and parole clients
  • Parole Hearings on cases in which our department is recommending denial of parole at this time
  • PFA (Protection From Abuse) hearings related to persons already on Probation or Parole
  • Some Pre-Sentence Investigations
  • Collection of all state-mandated DNA samples on probation/parole cases
