Reentry - A Bridge to Success

Silvia Jackson
Reentry Director

More than 95 percent of offenders under the custody of DOC will return to their communities. The public is best served if offenders are not only held accountable for their actions, but also have the opportunity to become law abiding and successful members of society. The ultimate goal of Reentry is crime reduction, fewer victims, reduced state and local criminal justice costs, and most importantly, safer families and communities.

Reentry promotes offender success from admission through discharge through the application of evidence based practices.The Department’s Reentry philosophy is governed by the Reentry Business Plan and calls for the engagement of offenders as early as possible through risk assessment and case planning in the COMPAS system, treatment, and motivation for change.
