It is the mission of the Monongalia County Day Report Center to provide a viable, cost effective alternative to incarceration for appropriate offenders. In partnership with the judicial system, government agencies and community resources, the Day Report Center will reduce offender risk and the likelihood of future criminal behavior, by providing the offender the opportunity to learn about his/her behavior, acquire new skills to address problematic issues, and develop tools to ensure long-term success while enhancing public safety.
The Monongalia County Day Report Center (DRC) opened in March 2005 and is located in the county-owned building at 75 High Street in Morgantown, West Virginia. The DRC office is located in the same building as the Probation Office, Home Confinement, Drug Court, and the Magistrate and Family Law Master Courts.
Case Managers at the DRC conduct the LS/CMI risk/needs assessment to develop an individualized program plan for each participant. They additionally conduct random drug and alcohol testing. Services available in-house at the DRC include substance abuse treatment, individual counseling, parenting education, anger management, life skills training, women’s group, parenting group and drug and alcohol education. Batterer’s intervention programs, education and job service programs, psychiatric treatment, and other services are available in the community.
The DRC program utilizes evidence-based practices to increase offender accountability, reduce recidivism, and promote public safety. In partnership with the judicial system, government agencies and community resources, the program provides supervision and services to pre-trial and sentenced offenders of all risk levels.
