Transition From Jails to Community – Technical Assistance

selected in response to California Assembly Bill 109).

Historically, community reintegration has proven complicated related to the brief length of stays in jails, the complex needs of justice-involved adults, and the lack of community-based coordination for supervision and/or post release treatment.

These reintegration issues are more pronounced when considering the approximate 12 million adults transitioning through our nation’s 3000+ local and community jails annually.

The need exists for implementation of national strategy to increase public safety while enhancing evidence based programming to support the reintegration efforts of the men and women transitioning back into our nation’s communities.
