Unit 2 Recording: Making Re-Entry from Detention Successful

Contemporary detention issues felt by most counties: tightened jail budgets, concerning recidivism rates, law enforcement relations, poverty, unemployment, custodial assaults, suicides, deteriorating conditions of confinement, litigation, and other factors motivated Peoria County Sheriff’s Department to do something new.

This webinar presents a pathway of 60 plus days of rehabilitation programming taken by offenders and their families through the Jobs Partnership Re-Entry Program at the Peoria County Jail, in Peoria, Illinois. In this webinar, the pioneering program’s educational, social, behavioral and spiritual components will be explored along with its progressive family restoration strategies. Program impacts, post-incarceration outcome-measures, and future considerations will also be explored.
