This program provides supervision and treatment for felony offenders who are eligible for probation and who would otherwise be committed to an incarcerative sentence with the NYS Department of Correctional Services (DOCS). The goal of this project is to reduce the number of DOCS commitments made in this county on an annual basis, for those non-violent offenders who could be appropriately managed in the community, with a system of graduated sanctions and service. The project provides day reporting or day treatment services, electronic monitoring, intensive supervision and other forms of offender control to ensure his or her law-abiding behavior and satisfaction of the court-ordered conditions of release, such as restitution, community service and participation in substance abuse treatment.
