Ensuring that offenders have the tools they need to be successful after release from custody is a fundamental public safety interest.

Ensuring that offenders have the tools they need to be successful after release from custody is a fundamental public safety interest.

The process of planning for re-entry should begin early in a person's sentence.

The successful re-integration of offenders returning from custody requires work by multiple government and private agencies. In the area of community supports, the more closely corrections agencies and community-based providers can work together, the better they are able to provide a comprehensive web of services that could not be provided by a single agency. Access to a well-organized web of services and supportive community connections can greatly enhance an offender's ability to succeed.

Limited correctional and community resources should be prioritized for people who are more likely to re-offend. The greatest reductions in future criminal behavior result from re-investing the greatest resource in those with the highest risk of recidivism. In addition, re-entry services and practices should be guided by the effectiveness research on reducing recidivism.
