On August 26, 2010, the National Reentry Resource Center will host a free webinar for local government officials interested in offender reentry. The webinar will discuss the role of local government in reentry, how local government agencies can establish and sustain reentry efforts, and how these efforts affect local budgets. Reentry tools and resources available to local governments, such as the Urban Institute’s Transition from Jail to Community Implementation Toolkit will be profiled.
The webinar will feature presentations by:
- Sheriff Andrea Cabral, Suffolk County, Massachusetts
- Research Associate, Jesse Jannetta, the Urban Institute
- Commissioner Scott Martin, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
After the presentations, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.
The webinar, supported by the U.S Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, will be held at 2:00 P.M. (E.T.) on Thursday, August 26, 2010.
