Abstract

The following research goals were established to guide the research and answer the problem: 1. Does intensive supervision provided by Day Reporting Centers reduce the likelihood of probationers violating their conditions of probation? 2. Is intensive supervision provided by Day Reporting Centers more effective in ensuring public safety then regular supervision? 3. Do violations of probation initiated by Day Reporting Centers result in more sentence revocations than violations of offenders on regular supervision? 4. Do special programs such as life skills and substance abuse counseling provided by Day Reporting Centers reduce recidivism?
