Participation in Partnerships
The department has traditionally forged partnerships with other entities, many of them through its Dialogues and Linkages Program initiated in 1993. The program is founded upon the department's belief that there is more involved in achieving safety and quality of life in our communities than simply building more prison beds. Of equal importance is reducing the number of initial entries into the correctional system and significantly reducing high rates of recidivism. In January 1995 there were 222 partnership agreements with public and private organizations, many of which operated at multiple locations.18
