Police Involvement in Prisoner Re-entry a Plus

January 23, 2008

Abstract

Seattle's impressive crime drop suggests that helping former prisoners succeed can yield great gains in public safety. When police work expands to encompass both the surveillance and support of returning prisoners, the possibilities for effective crime control multiply. Police involvement can also leverage resources and intelligence from other agencies, aid in the early apprehension of reoffenders, and fast-track prosecution efforts.
