Ceremony marks 24th graduation for OPSO
Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman will preside over the graduation of 12 individuals from the New Orleans Day Reporting Center (NODRC). This marks the 24th graduation since the program was implemented at the OPSO in 2009.
The NODRC program, an alternative to incarceration, teaches participants the skills and tools necessary to succeed as hardworking members of the greater New Orleans community. Participants have undergone education, employment, substance abuse and anger management classes in addition to individual and group counseling sessions.
To date, 577 individuals have successfully completed the requirements of the NODRC program, with the majority having already secured post-employment opportunities.

The NODRC, a partnership between the OPSO and the Louisiana Department of Public Safety & Corrections, is an alternative to incarceration where active attendance and compliance with the rules of the Day Reporting Center allows a parole or probation violator to avoid jail.
This program strives to maximize the experience of an individual who is under the supervision of Probation and Parole by assisting them with community re-integration through education, substance abuse treatment, individual and group work, employment, anger management and a variety of other services deemed appropriate for the individual.
