Guidelines to Gang Reentry

The American Probation and Parole Association is pleased to announce the availability of a new CD-ROM titled Guidelines to Gang Reentry. The development of this resource was funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and was prepared in cooperation with the Association of State Correctional Administrators and the Institute for Intergovernmental Research.

The Guidelines to Gang Reentry CD-ROM provides guidelines and resources specific to working with gang-involved offenders during the three main phases of reentry:

The Institutional Phase of Reentry focuses on what needs to occur with gang-involved offenders/defendants from jail or prison intake to release from secure custody;

The Structured Reentry Phase focuses on how to enhance collaboration among institutional and community corrections staff to transition gang-involved offenders and defendants to the community; and

The Community Reintegration Phase focuses on how community corrections professionals (i.e., parole/probation staff) can assess, prepare case plans for, and supervise gang-involved offenders/defendants more effectively.

The CD is FREE, but the American Parole and Probation Association charges $5 to cover shipping and handling. Click here to order the Guidelines to Gang Reentry now!
