REENTRY COORDINATOR Community Treatment Coordinator
The Reentry Coordinator (RC) works with the Institution staff to facilitate the release of offenders that have been granted or have the possibility for being granted parole. The RC verifies the offender’s release residence and support network before release. In addition, the RC coordinates services in the community for the offender and sets appointments before the offender leaves the institution. This effort is believed to enhance the released offender’s probability of having a successful transition from prison to community supervision. The RC also meets with the offender and completes a number of assessments used to determine the offender’s needs and risks before case assignment to a field officer. This allows for the field officer to have the assessments available to use in the negotiation of the offender’s reentry case plan. The development of this position has improved the delivery of services to this population and has had a positive impact on their transition to community supervision.
