DAY REPORTING CENTERS | Making A Difference
Sentinel has partnered with the Nevada Public Safety Division of Parole and Probation to open Day Reporting Centers in Las Vegas and Reno. Sentinel developed the Day Reporting Center Model to better assist our community corrections partners in their efforts to reduce recidivism by better preparing participants to successfully transition As a community-based resource, each DRC partners with state and local social services agencies and outreach organizations to provide participants with additional resources that actively support their efforts to get their lives back on the right path.In addition to providing court-mandated electronic monitoring and drug testing services, each DRC offers participants access to a host of services to help in their successful transition back into their communities. These include cognitive skills courses on subjects ranging from anger management to parenting and family values; and life skills courses in basic money management and employment readiness (e.g., résumé and cover letters, job search assistance, etc.).
JULIE HUNT, Director of Human Resources CELEBRATES 25 YEARS AT SENTINEL “Although I have hired more than 1,000 employees for Sentinel during my tenure, I have also worn many, many other hats. I have been responsible for everything from writing proposals to setting up payroll to coordinating the relocation of the company (twice). No two days were ever the same and loved every minute of it.
“I was given a lot of responsibility but I was also given the opportunity to figure things out and learn. Bob (Contestabile) gave me the freedom and opportunity to grow with the company and learn many valuable lessons along the way. In fact, taking on new challenges—almost every day it seemed—and the lesson learned from those challenges helped turn me into the leader I am today. I’m really glad I took a chance 25 years ago, and I’m proud to be a part of this wonderful company!”
