progressive inmate programs to reduce recidivism

Reducing recidivism has been an ongoing challenge, but one that I remain committed to. This year, we added three new programs to our already extensive portfolio of innovative inmate programs: Sprouts, Planting Justice, and Arts in Corrections. We also made technological advancements in our correctional facilities that benefit not only the inmates, but family and friends of inmates, as well as our correctional staff. Among those improvements were the transition to an electronic commissary system which allows family and friends of inmates to deposit funds into an inmate’s account electronically, and enables inmates to purchase commissary items with minimal assistance from staff. We continue to focus on creating an environment that is conducive to the well-being and development of our inmates with the goal of preparing them to successfully return to our communities.
