We are excited to welcome you to MAPSA’s new website!

It is MAPSA’s mission to create a safe and just criminal justice system by providing quality training to our members, promoting information to improve pretrial programs and promoting the importance of pretrial services in Minnesota.

We hope that this newly designed website will serve as a springboard for the accomplishment of this mission by providing resources and the latest news relative to pretrial services. If there is anything that you would like to see on this website, please feel free to contact us through the ‘contact’ option on this site or by contacting your local district representative.

Currently, MAPSA is in the process of planning our Spring training which will again be held at Mystic Lake Casino. If you have any training ideas that you would like to see at a MAPSA conference, please let us know.

We also continue to work with jurisdictions across Minnesota to assess how our State’s criminal justice system assesses pretrial risk in hopes of moving towards a more consistent and fair pretrial system. This new website will hopefully be a resource for any person who currently works within a pretrial services agency or for anyone who has an interest in the improvement of Minnesota’s pretrial services.
