Welcome to DC Public Safety – radio and television shows on crime, criminal offenders and the criminal justice system.
See http://media.csosa.gov for our television shows, blog and transcripts. We now average 228,000 requests a month.
The show interviews Walter Hagins, Program Manager of the Day Reporting Center for the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) in Washington, D.C. Also interviewed were two offenders currently assigned to the Day Reporting Center. We did not use the names of offenders for this program.
The Day Reporting Center provides an alternative to incarceration for technical violations such as not gaining employment or missing appointments with staff. Offenders are referred to the Center when they do not comply with the terms of parole or probation.
The Center provides intervention services such as employment readiness, substance abuse, life skills, anger management and many additional interventions.
The show is hosted by Leonard Sipes. The producer is Timothy Barnes.
