As Federal, state, and local governments look toward reentry programming as a means to improve outcomes for prisoners returning to the community, researchers are beginning to produce results regarding the effectiveness of these efforts.  The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has just posted an extensive review of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections' Community Orientation and Reintegration (COR) program, research done by Linda G. Smith and Denise R. Suttle of the International Association of Reentry.  Of note, the outcome evaluation report found "failures for COR Completers compared to the Control Group for almost every recidivism, employment, and substance abuse measure used in the outcome evaluation."
