Public Interest

Protecting the Public Through Reduced Recidivism

It has been proven that offenders who do not reoffend make for safer communities. By utilizing evidence based practices in our supervision methods we can better prepare our offenders to reenter the community in a productive meaningful away.

We approach this in several ways

  • Staff training
  • Offender education
  • Offender programming
  • Work opportunities

Volunteers are an important part of our efforts. Volunteers can assist with religious programming, self-help groups and education.
