DCS Celebrates Community Supervision Week
ATLANTA - Commencing operations July 1, 2015, as a part of the executive branch of Georgia’s government, the Georgia Department of Community Supervision (DCS) is the agency responsible for the supervision of all adult felony offenders and Class A & B designated juvenile offenders. These individuals under supervision have either been granted parole or a reprieve by the State Board of Pardons and or they have received probated or split sentences through Georgia courts.

The road to recovery can be full of detours. Sometimes people need extra guidance to find their pathway to success.
That’s the idea behind Georgia’s Day Reporting Centers. Since 2002, these centers have provided intensive, community-based counseling and rehabilitative services for nonviolent probationers and parolees with substance use and mental health problems. Those who complete programs at the centers have a better chance of staying out of jail and reintegrating back into society.
The Georgia Department of Community Supervision, which manages the state’s 35 centers, wants to enhance the opportunities for positive outcomes but needs to know the right metrics to measure. That has been difficult because evaluation methods typically used for DRCs are outdated and rely on tools primarily adapted from more custodial settings such as prisons, jails and detention centers. As a consequence, administrators have been uncertain of where improvements are needed.
ATLANTA - Today Governor Brian Kemp announced the recipients of the 2019 Governor's Public Safety Awards (GPSA) at a ceremony in Forsyth recognizing public safety professionals for acts of heroism and for contributions to the profession.
