2018 Reducing Recidivism & Reentry Conference – reference materials

13th Annual Reducing Recidivism & Reentry Conference Smart Justice in Alaska

Smart Justice in Alaska

About the Conference

Returning to everyday life within the community and receiving the necessary supportive services to avoid reincarceration is a challenge for Trust beneficiaries* transitioning out of the correctional system.  Luckily, Alaska has begun to implement and evaluate smart justice strategies to increase the likelihood of individual success, therefore making communities safer.  Join us as we identify some of the challenges facing these community members, identify ways to support them and help address their individual needs and discuss Alaska‚Äôs efforts to reduce recidivism and increase public safety.

*Trust beneficiary groups include: mental illness, developmental disabilities, chronic alcoholism and other substance related disorders, Alzheimer’s and related dementia, and traumatic brain injuries.
