Team: Recipe for Reentry Success
In 2001, Ogden's eight-block
Weed and Seed site had one of the highest concentrations
of adult offenders on probation or parole in Utahnearly
12 percent of the entire population. In many cases, an apartment
building would have 3 of 4 units rented to offenders, and
parole officers had caseloads that exceeded 40 adults.
Easing the Transition
When transition back to the community is left solely up to
the released offender, the community is put at risk. The Reentry
Partnership Initiative can minimize the risk while also
achieving community safety.
