Reentry is a new focus of contemporary corrections. Elected officials are continuously looking for new ways to help prisoners with their reentry back into communities. The Second Chance Act, which authorized over $300 million for prisoner programs, was designed to help protect public safety and reduce recidivism rates.

Would the program be the same for men and women? Be specific; you may discuss an internal or external program.
