Discharge planning is a convenient way to get three wins: help a jail's residents, help the community, and generate savings in one low- or no-budget program. This workshop will discuss "Familiar Faces Action & Community Transition," a successful, evidence-based program that has been replicated by several jurisdictions. Topics include how to build a program at low cost, get stakeholder buy-in, evaluate the program, and use the results to make your community love your jail.
- Describe the benefits of a discharge planning program
