Offender Re-entry

Across Virginia, jurisdictions release thousands of offenders from jails and prisons each year. The successful transition of offenders back into the community— without their re-offending, is critical to community safety. In fact, research indicates that involving offenders in a comprehensive process that addresses substance abuse and mental health needs, education and employment training could help break the cycle of criminality and provide the opportunity for offenders to lead productive lives upon their return.
