    Offender Reentry - A Police Perspective

    in Self Help

    "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.
