Day Reporting Center (DRC)

In January 2007, Cumberland County Adult Probation launched its Day Reporting Center (DRC) program.  This six month program is designed to provide intensive, community based supervision of nonviolent 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/parole officer several times per week, maintain full time employment, complete drug/alcohol treatment, abide by set curfews, complete daily itineraries, and report daily to the DRC in person or by telephone.  Inmates who are not Cumberland County residents or currently serving a sentence in Cumberland County Prison 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. Major or repeated 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/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:
 
  1. Successfully complete recommended counseling.
  2. Attend AA or NA meetings if directed by their probation/parole officer.
  3. Comply with curfews determined by his or her probation/parole officer.
  4. Check in with the DRC daily by phone or in person.
  5. Continue to take prescribed medications.
  6. Complete daily activity logs and submit copies of pay stubs.
  7. Do not consume alcohol.
There is currently one probation/parole officer assigned to the DRC which is located at 4 East Liberty Avenue, Carlisle. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
