Shaman, this could also be seen as being fiscally conservative.-Capricorn1

IF money were the main concern--How about we focus on making society a safer, more pleasant, productive, or better yet "civilized" one.-Scott

I agree with MrShaman although I must honestly admit that, to me, the human element associated with rehabilitation is always more appealing to me than the merry-go-round that is incarceration, which, doesn't seem to be working (overcrowding illustrates that). Let's try to think at a higher level and support the day reporting center!

"It's not the complete answer for Lycoming County's chronic prison overcrowding, but a day reporting center is clearly being seen as a big step forward to solving the problem.

But this much seems clear: The county is intent on having a day-reporting center to help solve its prison overcrowding problem.

And that's as it should be. Besides reducing prison overcrowding, a day-reporting center would help rehabilitate nonviolent offenders.

And it would save money."
