Reentry involves programs targeted at promoting the effective reintegration of offenders back to communities upon release from prison and jail. Reentry programming, often involves a comprehensive case management approach and is intended to assist offenders in acquiring the life skills needed to succeed in the community and become law-abiding citizens. A variety of programs are used to assist offenders in the reentry process, including prerelease programs, drug rehabilitation and vocational training, and work programs.
Tune in to Reentry Radio and be prepared to take down information about reentry programming in your area.
After spending time in a correctional facility, youth are often released without family, system, or community support. For a myriad of reasons, these youth face high rates of unemployment and education failure, have limited viable housing options, and are unable to access the assistance they require. Many now realize that in order to achieve long-term success, that reentry planning must occur way before a youth returns to his or her community. In order to address this disconnect and increase chances of success, the Juvenile Court in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Youth Services, Division of Parole, and community-based services, created a reentry court. Using evidence-based practices and with a goal to reduce recidivism and re-incarceration of youth, the project begins to work with youth several months before release and the support continues post-release. Guests on this episode will discuss the development and implementation of the collaborative effort, provide an overview of the mechanics of the reentry court itself, and share lessons learned.

"Prisoner reentry today presents significant challenges for communities and the ex-offender." "We know that most people who are incarcerated will eventually be released, and we know that an increasing number of offenders will be released without having received adequate employment skills or substance abuse counseling. We also know that recently released offenders are estimated to account for 20percent of all adult arrests made by police. Therefore, it should be no surprise that the best possible outcome for the community and the ex-offender can be achieved more effectively when police are proactively involved in supporting the reentry process.
...COPS Director Carl R. Peed.

Fighting mass incarceration must also include reducing recidivism. Prisoners face challenges being released from prison, including (a) the loss of good time programs, (b) unresponsive pardons and parole boards, (c) mandatory sentencing laws. Some released prisoners face tremendous challenges getting acclimated back into society, including (1) poor employment prospects, (2) lack of family and community support, and (3) expenses related to their release, i.e., ankle bracelets, probation fees. Ex-convicts who served sentences for certain offenses may be denied voting rights, and many are ineligible for government programs offering subsistence assistance and educational benefits. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent. Recidivism is even higher among released inmates who have acute mental illness and were released from prison without arrangements for their continued psychiatric treatment.
Human Rights for Prisoners March provides:
Advocacy for adequate defense, fair trials, drug courts, mental health courts, post-conviction DNA tests, safe and humane incarceration, and successful re-entry.
Advocacy against prisoner abuse, avoidable deaths caused by police and corrections officers, solitary confinement, children tried and sentenced as adults, criminalizing mental illness, inadequate health care, wrongful convictions, law of parties, three-strikes law, enforced prison labor, and capital punishment.
Guests include people who have experienced, or who have specialized knowledge about, prison conditions and overuse of force by police or correctional officers, or any subject related to crime and punishment, including improvements proposed or realized.

Susan Burton, noted South Los Angeles Community Activist, and other Community Activists will participate in a dialogue about the state of our communities, today. The topic is Proposition 47! Very important to our incarcerated neighbors! It is on the November ballot. Tune in to hear What Proposition 47 is about. Call in. Comment. This is YOUR SHOW!! Your opportunity to speak YOUR MIND!
According to a recent newspaper article,
"I would also call your attention to the recent landmark study requested by Placer County. The study, after surveying its justice system, recommended a reduction of jail admissions, and an increase in drug detoxification and mental health treatment services coupled with an expansion of other rehabilitation services.
There is widespread support for Prop 47 from a diverse range of law enforcement, public safety, judicial and elected public officials as well as the faith based community — see www.safety and schools.com.
“In the spirit of advocating for an informed public, I encourage you to carefully assess the arguments offered by the bill’s opponents. To my mind, they are driven by a punishment first ideology, rather than any fact-based assessment.” Whyman (Oct., 2014)
