St. Louis County, MO Tap In Center Criminal Justice System

Free consultations provide information on legal processes, case progress, and applying for public defenders. The Tap In Center connects participants to court date alerts, transportation, and social services through the Bail Project. This service reduces pre-trial detention and obstacles to fair trials for residents with minimal financial resources.
