Thumbnail previewThe impact of reentry on the victim services system is an untapped area of need in corrections and community supervision.  In the past two years, NIC has presented workshops on Reentry - the Value of Victim Involvement at several national conferences.  NIC also produced an internet broadcast on this topic which was very well received. The broadcast focused on the unique opportunities and challenges of including victims in the offender reentry prodess. By including victims, we can obtain more balanced information about the offender and their offense history which can positively impact reentry decisions. This approach can result in better outcomes for the community, offenders and victims through enhanced offender accountability, increased victim satisfaction, and community safety.

In addition, there is a desktop guide in development for use by Probation and Parole Agents to assist them in more effective response strategies when they have contact with victims.  It will be introduced officially this summer at the APPA conference.
