The eighth installment in SEARCH's Information Sharing podcast series, which focuses on information sharing as part of the offender reentry process, was launched February 17.
The Reentry Information Sharing Pilot Project is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance and is intended to design, develop, and implement a set of information sharing capabilities the corrections community can use to exchange information between public safety, human/social services partners, and other community resources that participate in the offender reentry process.
"The overall goal of the pilot project is to demonstrate the improved efficiencies and effectiveness of the reentry process through sharing information," noted SEARCH Systems and Technology Director Mark Perbix.
Participating in the podcast are:
- Mr. Robert L. May, Associate Director, Association of State Correctional Administrators (ASCA)
