John Carney on Crime

 

 


Inmates should leave prison better than when they entered

Last year, I signed an Executive Order to help ex-offenders more successfully reenter their communities. This year, all inmates sentenced to more than a year in custody get individualized plans as soon as they enter prison. The plans focus on drug treatment, education, and job skills. It's in everyone's interest that these individuals leave prison better off than when they entered.

Help ex-offenders back into community

I signed an Executive Order to help ex-offenders more successfully reenter their communities. We're creating individualized plans for each inmate. The goal is to give them the drug treatment, education, and job skills they need to survive on the outside. Bottom line is really quite simple: over 90 percent of inmates will eventually leave prison. We need to make sure they're better off when they leave prison than when they got there in the first place.
