Under Alaska's new pretrial bail system which went into effect on Jan. 1, 2018, court-appointed third-party custodians -- traditionally a friend or relative who takes responsibility for monitoring someone pending trial -- are gradually becoming a thing of the past in parts of the state, including Anchorage. 

Now, the state's new Pretrial Enforcement Division (PED) officers will be tasked with supervising defendants determined to be more of a risk if released before trial. 

"We still have cases that arise out of 2017 conduct that are just now being charged, then we could ask for the third party custodian," Assistant District Attorney Kevin Bergt explained.
