The Reentry Unit assists offenders with their transition from jail to community by providing services and referrals based on assessed need. Through the coordination of in jail services and programs with community resources, an effective, individualized transition plan is developed linking the ex-offender to a community based support system.
Four critical steps must be taken with each offender to create an effective strategy for reentry. These are:
- Assess the clinical and social needs of the inmate and the risk to public safety.
- Plan for treatment and services needed to address the offender's needs.
- Identify community and correctional programs for post-release services.
- Coordinate the transition plan through effective case management.
Successful reentry services are expected to enhance public safety, by reducing crime and recidivism, and the reintegration of the ex-offender back into our community. Successful reentry outcomes are anticipated in the form of increased ex-offender participation in the local labor force, family relationships, and community, school, and religious institutional involvement.
