Register Now for Webinar: “An Overview of Sex Offender Reentry: Building a Foundation for Professionals”

The challenges associated with reentry after incarceration are intensified for individuals who have been convicted of sex offenses. Research reveals that upon return to the community, sex offenders are more likely to be rearrested for a non-sex crime than a new sex crime, and that supervision violation rates are high. The field struggles with developing effective comprehensive reentry strategies that respond to the myriad general and specialized needs of sex offenders. This webinar is the first in a series designed for professionals working to prepare individuals convicted of a sexual offense to return to the community. More Information

Well one I noticed on the site where this came from you can’t comment on it, because they don’t want you to, the reason so’s get rearrested is because they set the system up so you will fail that way you can’t file in 10 years to be removed, I guess they don’t want you to live in there city but you can’t leave the country so with that being said if you must live a zone (stupid) which means they don’t want you here but they don’t want you to leave the country, sure sounds like punishment to me and they know it.

The first thing that needs to be addressed is the amount of individuals with 288(..) charges who are violated for having contact with their own children. Even a photograph will catch a violation. This is a common occurrence for parolee’s. I can hardly think of a more cruel or unusual punishment than the separation of a family when the children were not the victims, but become the victims of a heartless system.

Let us all attend this webinar, do some educating and learn what this organization and this presenter has to say on this issue. Who knows, we might learn something valuable.

You may have missed the item that says the webinar is designed for professionals working with preparing others. You may not be able to get in. For obvious reasons, I don’t trust the government. I read somewhere that if you visit a government website the fine print says that by accessing their system, your computer becomes part of their system. As such, they technically can come to your home and collect “their” hard drive, cables, flash drives, etc. Who knows what the government will do with all the data collected when millions were forced to sign up for Obama care on government websites with personal information. Sorry for the rant. If you do learn something good, please share. Peace!

I sure didn’t miss that part. I qualify to attend this presentation, that’s why I was invited to attend and chose to spread the word. Also, it is a virtual conference — people are not turned away at the door, nor is ID checked. I hear your concerns and personally find it useful to know what is going on with this issue, from both sides of the fence. Knowledge is power.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

I refuse to attend because it’s basically funded by federal government. If it wasn’t, then it’d be free from bias, or at least, there is hope. Unfortunately any time a program is funded, any amount from a government entity, especially federal government, there are always strings attached. This can also be calling into question anything good that come from this. Any work done to fix any problem must be done so without the funding from the federal government.

Right on Jason Wilson!

Just to illuminate – it is put on by The National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC), which was established by the Second Chance Act. They are part of The Council of State Governments Justice Center, which is a national nonprofit organization that serves policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels from all branches of government. As I said above, knowledge is power.

Get them jobs…jobs…jobs…they wanna work…give them all the work they can handle but don’t revoke them for not putting a one cent stamp extra on envelope …stupid lap like that……and they need to help with money for apartment …they wanna an address where lives…they need to help pay.for the apartment .

Its in the public interest (that’s what they say to other ship) for the public pay at least half the cost of apt or house…..what better way to know a person is residing …now that’s in the public I terrarium.

……now that’s in the public interest.

what “they” are doing:
