In partnership with BJA, the IACP is examining the potential for intensified law enforcement involvement in offender reentry efforts. The IACP hopes to reduce recidivism, disorder and victimization through increased law enforcement participation in offender reentry programs. The following products are designed to assist law enforcement in their offender reentry efforts and, once complete, will be available on this web site:
- Video DVD highlighting a leading law enforcement-centric reentry program.
- Resource guide highlighting law enforcement reentry leading practices.
- Training curriculum to assist law enforcement agencies in creating and/or expanding their reentry efforts.
The video “Offender Reentry: A Police Perspective” features a police department that has developed, implemented, and currently manages a reentry program. The video illustrates potentially transferable strategies and practices that law enforcement executives can use in implementing or expanding an offender reentry program in their jurisdiction. Copies of the video can be downloaded or streamed here:
The publication “Building An Offender Reentry Program: A Guide for Law Enforcement” highlights law enforcement-involved reentry program profiles. The guide presents key strategies, components, and results of law enforcement participation in offender reentry efforts. Copies of the resource guide can be downloaded here.
