  • Jail Reentry Roundtable Initiative

  • The Urban Institute, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation held a roundtable on reentry from jails. The roundtable focused on the 12 million people released from local jails each year and the associated challenges faced by individuals, families, and communities. The Jail Reentry Roundtable aimed to fill the knowledge gap on this issue by commissioning papers, assembling practitioners and researchers, conducting a "scan of practice" of jail reentry programs, writing a national report on jail reentry, and developing a training curriculum for jail administrators and correctional staff.
