Factors related to success and recidivism in a day reporting center
Day Reporting Centers (DRCs) are a relatively new intermediate sanction that are increasingly being used across the United States as an alternative to incarceration. One of the major objectives of this community-based correctional program is to reduce offender recidivism after their successful exit from DRC. To date, researchers have paid little attention to examining the factors significantly related offenders' successful exit from DRC and their subsequent recidivism. Hence, this study investigates the factors significantly related to successful exit as well as post-program recidivism among offenders placed in a DRC during the calenders years of 1998 through 2000.
