Description

Rising numbers of inmates, coupled with declining pre-release training and outside supervision, foreshadow an unanticipated and generally unanswered breakdown in the continuum of community safety, particularly in inner cities. New innovations in the prisoner reentry field, both within the Massachusetts correction system and in local communities, hold some promise but these approaches are limited and address only a fraction of the thousands of inmates released each year. This report assesses the current situation in MA and makes recommendations.
