DOJ memo on BOP Reentry Initiatives
Department of Justice
Nov 30, 2016

“Successful reentry is critical for public safety, and so it is crucial that we get those services right. A growing body of research demonstrates that inmates are far more likely to return to society successfully if they are equipped with the prerequisites for a stable life. These include a steady job, a safe place to live, state-issued identification, and access to essential services such as health care, particularly mental health and substance abuse treatment. The difference between effective and inadequate reintegration programs is the difference between productive lives and recidivism, between safe streets and cycles of violence.”
