Task Force on Incarceration Release Planning and Programs

This task force will build upon the work of NYSBA’s Task Force on Re-Entry and will recommend state and national policy changes and best practices for effective incarceration release planning programs. The group will examine existing programs and consider all relevant issues including: options for those released into urban and rural settings, inconsistent rules and limited availability of substance abuse and mental health treatment, housing options, and the impact on recidivism and public safety that results from inadequate release planning.
