About the Day Reporting Program

The DRC includes monitoring, treatment, employment and daily contact. Participants must submit written itineraries on a daily and weekly basis. They must pay their own fees on a weekly basis. The program is viewed as providing close supervision, case management, and treatment in a manner that keeps offenders employed and is less expensive for the community.

Day Reporting Program Structure
gps offender tracking
GPS Offender Tracking
  • GPS offenders are monitored by an ankle bracelet equipped with a state of the art global positioning satellite (GPS) monitor. Offenders are assigned a caseworker that assists the offender in developing a weekly schedule. The offender is held accountable to follow the mandated schedule, as well as other conditions of release as stipulated by the court or LPSO’s GPS Offender program’s caseworker. Inability to abide by program requirements results in termination from the program.
      • 2002 – 2009
        • Enrolled = 1259
        • Completions = 919
        • Terminations = 239
