Sentinel Offender Services Teams with Nevada Department of Public Safety to Open New Day Reporting Center


Sentinel Offender Services LLC, one of the nation's leading providers of
offender management programs and electronic monitoring services, is
pleased to announce that it has teamed with the Nevada Department of
Public Safety to open a new Day Reporting Center in Las Vegas. Teaming

probation and parole system and provide the resources needed to help
participants more smoothly transition back into their community.

The new Day Reporting Center (DRC) will be staffed by professional case
managers from Sentinel as well as officers from the Nevada Department of
Public Safety. From the outset, DRC staff members will work directly
with each participant to design and implement a plan to help them
successfully meet their supervision requirements while proactively
preparing them for success upon the completion of their program. "Our
case managers are there to guide participants every step of the way,"
said Melissa Starr, Sentinel's Vice President of Field Operations. "They
work to identify those programs offered at the DRC that will benefit the
needs of the participant. In addition, they will help the participant
identify and access any additional support resources they need that may
be available from within the community."

required participation in a number of life skills classes and programs
offered at the DRC that include courses in anger management, parenting

While attending the DRC, participants may also be required to attend
specialized group sessions that address the often very serious issues
that create substantial disruption in a participant's daily life. The
Las Vegas DRC will offer sessions that address the emotional, substance
abuse and family issues that may hinder a participant's ability to
successfully transition back into their community.

Located at 714 South Fourth Street in Las Vegas, the new DRC will serve
up to 200 participants in Nevada's parole and probation system each
