Prisoner reentry is any activity or program dedicated to preparing and integrating parolees into the community as law-abiding citizens using a collaborative approach with parole officers, treatment providers and the community.
More than 95% of incarcerated prisoners will eventually be released: 650,000 every year.
Certain areas of cities receive a disproportionate number of parolees and have a high amount of unemployment, drugs and instability and disorganization
Some believe that reentry should encompass restorative justice and civic community service in a model of civic engagement if the community is willing to accept offenders returning to their communities.
Other reentry initiatives are to allow employers who hire parolees and ex-felons to receive federal tax credits after the employee has worked a certain amount of time or has earned a certain amount of money.
Reentry courts are a collaborative, team-based program that occurs after prison to improve the link between parole supervision and treatment providers.LO: 2
