Reentry Court Initiative (RCI) Of 2000

Initiated in 2000 by OJP, the Reentry Court Initiative (REI) was proposed  as a means to effectively deal with the high risk offender returning from prison, who had never been a target for drug and other problem-solving courts before. Started at the tail end of the Clinton Administration, the Reentry Court Initiative provided limited resources for  eight fledgling reentry courts for a short period of time before the RCI was shut down by the Bush Administration. It’s interesting to note that RCI standards that were promulgated in 2000 are the very same standards that are used in the 2010 BJA Reentry Court Solicitation, under Section 101 of the “Second Chance Act”. As significant is the fact that a number of Reentry Courts started under the RCI are still very much alive.
