Court Reporting Network
All persons arrested for Driving Under the Influence are to be evaluated using the Court Reporting Network instruments issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and any other additional evaluation techniques deemed appropriate by the court to determine the extent of the person’s involvement with alcohol or controlled substances and to assist the court in determining what sentencing, probation or conditions of Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition would benefit the person or the public. This 45 minute-hour interview includes questions pertaining to family history, medical background, drinking patterns and personal attitudes.
CRNs must be completed in the county where the DUI occurred.
Definition of CRN: CRN is the Pennsylvania Alcohol Highway Safety Program’s Court Reporting Network. It is a coordinated and integrated systems approach to the alcohol highway safety problem and resultant driving under the influence (DUI) countermeasure’s in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The principal purposes of the Court Reporting Network (CRN) are: to provide a timely, computer-assisted pre-screening evaluation and profile report of all PA DUI offenders prior to disposition; to provide an interactive information system that links the various county DUI programs into a comprehensive statewide network; and to assist local directors/managers in planning, implementation and monitoring of their countermeasure’s programs.

If you have applied for ARD or Probation with Restrictive Conditions the CRN cost is included. If you did traditional sentencing, the CRN fee is part of the total DUI Program fee of $250. CRN interviews are scheduled by appointment only. The CRN is not a drug and alcohol assessment.
The CRN must be completed before sentencing and before scheduling the required Alcohol Highway Safety School.
