Justice Center Announces Upcoming Reentry Guide for State-Level Policymakers January 23, 2008

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

The Council of State Governments Justice Center, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is developing a Reentry Guide that will aid state-level policymakers in establishing, assessing, and improving statewide prisoner reentry plans. The guide will provide a framework for policymakers to organize their reentry plans, as well as a checklist to determine which aspects of their plan are incomplete. The guide will also assist policymakers in collecting data about their state’s reentry efforts over the course of multiple years, allowing them to set specific benchmarks and hold state officials accountable for making progress towards these goals. Policymakers will be able to monitor specific components of their state’s reentry efforts through a web tool that will accompany the policy guide. The Justice Center plans to release these resources in Fall 2008.
