This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Janvi Patel to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Janvi Patel

Dear Department of Corrections,

I am after information on any and all active reintegration/ reentry programs available to offenders pre- and post-release. This may contain alcohol and drug programs, educational and vocational programs, employability programs, mental health and relationship/family programs, or any other program or initiative that aids in an offender’s reintegration back to society after release.

I would also like to request any material (briefs, summaries, documents, reports, etc.) that has evaluated or reviewed any active or inactive reintegrative program(s) or initiative(s), including recidivism figures for each. I would like this information broken down by

(a) program/initiative type
(b) length of program/ initiative
(c) intensity level
(d) participant size

I am also after information for all calendar years since 2004 on how many prisoners have been released in total due to:
(a) The completion of their sentence (categorized by sentence type)
(b) Early release due to parole
(c) Release on conditions

Yours faithfully,

Janvi Patel
