The NADCP Conference in July will feature a full day of workshops on Reentry Court.
The Reentry Court track that runs five workshops on reentry court topics on Monday July 18th
We are watching a major nationwide trend develop before our eyes; state prisoners returning early and often to local jurisdictions. That pattern can be observed in states such as California where major reforms are being implemented that return parolees to local courts for supervision, parole, and revocation; and in states like Indiana, where state-wide certification already standardizes rules for existing reentry courts This track will take a hard look at how different states are implementing state-wide reentry court systems, both jail and prison based.
Workshop A: 10:15-11:30

The State of Reentry Courts in California:
California has taken a giant step toward the systemization of reentry courts across the state. In addition to six pilot reentry courts that have been in operation for nearly a year, Governor Brown has signed legislation that may in the near future, give county judges primary responsibility to supervise parolees and hold parole revocation hearings.
