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 enhance public safety; reduce recidivism by successfully reintegrating offenders into the
community, thereby decreasing the number of new prisons needed; and foster partnerships to assist in providing prevention, intervention, and
diversionary services to at-risk individuals, offenders, and ex-offenders.
