Offender Reentry

Offender reentry is the transition period when an offender is released from prison back into the community. During this transition, a probation officer is assigned to supervise and monitor the offender. Probation officers develop a supervision plan for each offender or client that meets the conditions of their release.

Probation officers play a vital role in making the transition successful by providing resources such as access to treatment centers, employment opportunities, and education.
