PROGRAM GOAL
The Milwaukee County Day Reporting Center (MCDRC) is an alternative to incarceration for non-violent pretrial Deferred Prosecution Agreements and sentenced misdemeanor and felony offenders. Program participation is designed to divert offenders from jail into a community alternative while maintaining public safety and reducing detention costs. The goal of the MCDRC is to effectively supervise and treat offenders by addressing their identified criminogenic risks and needs. The desired outcomes for participants are to: reduce recidivism, satisfy all court obligations, address substance abuse treatment needs, obtain employment or be job-ready upon program completion, achieve academic achievement, and be accountable for the harm they have done to the community by giving service.


PROGRAM HISTORY
The MCDRC has been operated by WCS since January of 2013.


PROGRAM METHOD
MCDRC Case Managers facilitate progress on each client’s Individual Development Plan (IDP). The IDP determines which classes each client attends according to their goals and needs.  The IDP serves as an individually-tailored action plan to develop specific competencies (knowledge and skills) needed to prepare for new responsibilities as positive change occurs.
