Dauphin County Reentry Planning Meeting Kickoff
We have exciting news to share! Dauphin County, through an application submitted by the Criminal Justice Advisory Board (CJAB) & CRESC, was recently awarded a planning grant from the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) to bring together community stakeholders to collaborate on addressing the gap that exists in our counties for appropriate pre-release and post-release services for offenders reentering their communities. By the end of this eight-month strategic planning process, we aim to have a cohesive plan for ensuring supportive services for ex-offenders to ultimately reduce recidivism and promote self-sufficiency in our community.
Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, March 18, at 2:30pm via Zoom.
March Pre-Meeting Assignments:
1. Click here for a brief survey regarding "Desired Outcomes of a Collaborative Approach to Reentry."
2. In order to provide a common foundation of understanding across all coalition members of key issues in the criminal justice system that impact reentry, please review "The Maze of the Criminal Justice System." You can read a PDF version here. Or, you can view and listen to a recording of the presentation by clicking here.
3. Optional - Volunteer for a subcommittee here.
A shared drive with all planning documents has been created. You can access the abovementioned documents, all meeting notes, presentations, etc. here.
We believe that every ex-offender should have access to the services and resources necessary to maintain a productive, crime-free life.
