Louisiana Prisoner Reentry Initiative

Louisiana Reentry News

Faced with the highest incarceration rate in the nation, Louisiana legislators passed a series of reform measures and corrections officials overhauled the way it transitioned inmates from incarceration to reentry services. Part of this reentry effort was creating day reporting centers in Louisiana communities most impacted by returning inmates. The DRCs focus on delivering evidence-based programs designed to change criminal behavior and connecting participants to valuable local resources. The reform efforts are having a positive impact.
