Pre-Release Planning Work Group Charter

The purpose of this work group is to create a service continuum plan for state and county inmates that addresses their reentry needs beginning during incarceration and continuing post release in a way that reduces recidivism rates among ex-offenders at both institutional levels.

Work Group Goals

To create and implement a system that ensures that all inmates are assessed for needs and that the results form the foundation for services provided while the inmate is in prison or jail and shape discharge planning and services provided after release.  The assessment areas include but are not limited to substance abuse treatment, health care, mental health services, education, and employment training and services.


The Pre-Release Work Group is currently forming.
