Pre-Trial Intervention Program (PTIP) criteria can vary greatly, depending on the jurisdiction you are in. If you are qualified to apply for a PTIP program, you will be required to submit an application that could include a thorough program evaluation through the counties monitoring agency and a drug test. If you are deemed to be a good candidate, you will be required to sign a contract to be admitted into the program, a judicial confession to the offense you are being charged with and a pre-negotiated punishment in the event you are unsuccessful in the program.  Depending on your evaluation, PTIP programs may require you compete cognitive education courses, drug rehabilitation, submit to random drug tests and complete community service. Program fees and fees for the evaluation, drug tests and classes apply.
