Reentry in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Public Record has started a series of articles about criminal justice and reentry. Check out the first one here and the second one here.

The articles highlight budget and operations issues among city agencies that are preventing probation and parole officers from effectively supervising probationers and parolees.

The next article in the series should come out on Saturday and will likely feature the Harlem Parole Reentry Court as an innovation that could help address this problem.
