Pretrial Process and Resources

At the beginning of a federal criminal case, the principal actors are the U.S. attorney (the prosecutor) and the grand jury. The U.S. attorney represents the United States in most court proceedings, including all criminal prosecutions.

In the federal court system, along with investigations, supervision is a core responsibility of United States Pretrial Services Officers.
