Prisoner Reentry and Community Policing

Strategies for Enhancing Public Safety


The eighth meeting of the Reentry Roundtable, entitled Community Policing and Prisoner Reentry: Strategies for Enhancing Public Safety, was held in May 2004. Meeting participants discussed various perspectives on the role of law enforcement and community policing in tackling the public safety consequences of the increasing number of individuals entering and leaving the nation's prisons each year. To facilitate discussion, the Urban Institute commissioned four discussion papers exploring how community policing can respond to the challenges of prisoner reentry and public safety within the context of community concerns, sentencing policy, and corrections. This document contains those papers.
