Office of the Secretary
Re-Entry

The vision of the Office of Re-Entry is to achieve a leadership role that unifies departmental resources to prepare and provide inmates and offenders the skills and tools for a successful re-entry into the community.

The mission is to provide inmates and offenders with comprehensive programs and services that will assist in the successful re-entry into the community, thereby reducing recidivism while enhancing public safety, and promoting post-release success.

The three main goals of the Office of Re-Entry are to:

  1. Enhance public safety;

  2. Reduce recidivism by successfully reintegrating offenders into the community, thereby decreasing the number of new prisons needed; and

  3. Foster partnerships to assist in providing prevention, intervention, and diversionary services to at-risk individuals, offenders, and ex-offenders.
