Reentry Task Forces
In November 2005, the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) developed county reentry task forces. The projects were intended to reduce recidivism by connecting high-risk participants with community support during their transition from incarceration to living in the community. Since 2007, RECAP has co-chaired the Orange County Reentry Task Force where we help participants make positive and effective connections.
