In January 2007, Cumberland County Adult Probation launched its Day
Reporting Center (DRC) program. This 4-1/2 month program is designed to
provide intensive, community-based supervision of non-violent offenders
in an effort to provide them with the resources and tools to serve the
balance of their sentence in the community rather than in prison.
Offenders meet with their probation and parole officer several times per
week, maintain full-time employment, complete drug/alcohol treatment,
abide by set curfews, complete daily itineraries, attend life skills
programming, and report daily to the DRC in person or by telephone.
Inmates who are currently serving sentences in Cumberland County Prison or not Cumberland County residents, are not eligible for this program.
The DRC is based on accountability and responsibility, and offenders understand that there is a sanction for any and every violation. Sanctions include, but are not limited to, verbal/written reprimands, increase in mandatory check-ins, reductions in curfews, an increase in breath or urine screens for substance abuse, phase extensions, assignment of community service hours, and referrals for additional training or evaluations. Repeated or major violations will result in the offender being revoked from the DRC program.
Offenders who successfully complete each phase will have less restrictive curfews and fewer mandatory meetings with their probation and parole officer. Offenders who complete the DRC program may qualify for a 90-day reduction in the active supervision of their sentence provided their behavior continues to warrant such a recommendation.
In addition to the standard conditions of probation, parole, and intermediate punishment, DRC offenders must comply with the following special conditions:
You must successfully complete recommended counseling.
You must attend NA and/or AA meetings if directed by your probation and parole officer.
You must comply with curfews determined by your probation and parole officer.
You must check in with the DRC daily, by phone or in person.
There is currently 1 probation officer assigned to the DRC which is located in the Old Prison at 37 East High Street in Carlisle. The office is open from 8 AM to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with extended hours on Wednesday until 6 p.m..
