Napa County selects BI Incorporated to operate Day Reporting Center for probationers, sentenced offenders
The Napa County Probation Department has selected BI Incorporated, a leading provider of offender monitoring technology and treatment services, for reentry and day reporting services. These services, designed to cut costs and reduce chronic recidivism, will be delivered at a new center and in the Napa County Jail. As part of this multi-year agreement, BI will open an intensive supervision and treatment Day Reporting Center in Napa and provide these same services for inmates preparing for release from jail. Both of these programs are designed to alleviate jail crowding and reduce taxpayer expense.
The Napa County Day Reporting Center will be located at the County Hall of Justice, 1125 Third St. It will open in March and will serve up to 50 probationers. The center will also supervise pretrial defendants who are awaiting trial. Up to 50 inmates will also receive these services at the Napa County Jail. For inmates, BI staff will go to the jail to meet with them. BI operates Day Reporting Centers for correctional agencies nationwide, including the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
"Napa County officials are making a strong statement for public safety by working with individuals who will be returning to our communities before they are released from jail and closely supervising their behavior in the community once released,” said Matt Moore, BI’s Western Regional Manager. “The center will be a resource for the probation department to refer more challenging individuals who require intensive supervision and treatment classes to break the cycle of repeat criminal behavior."
BI’s programs are Cognitive Behavioral Programs operating under evidence-based principles. Individuals referred to the DRC go through a four-phase program that lasts up to 180 days. Participants will report daily at first, then less frequently as they comply with program guidelines. In addition to daily check-ins, participants are monitored closely for alcohol and drug use, meet with case managers, and participate in a series of treatment and training classes.
Offenders enrolled in the DRC program are held strictly accountable and are expected to display positive behaviors. Failure to comply with DRC rules and guidelines will result in increased sanctions such as tighter curfews, more frequent visits to the Center, additional classes or a return to incarceration.
The Napa County DRC will be open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
