 2016 Reentry Workshop


When:  September 27, 2016               


Where:  Days Inn, State College

What:  The 2016 Reentry Workshop will demonstrate the importance of county service coordination, how to use risk assessment outcomes beyond determing supervision levels, and using risk assessment outcomes to drive the selection of community-based services and providers.  This Workshop will be an invaluable opportunity for counties in all stages of reentry!

Who Should Attend: To realize the maximum benefit of this Workshop, counties are encouraged to select three to five key strategic reentry partners to attend.

The Keynote Speaker, Myrinda Schweitzer Smith, from the Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR) and the University of Cincinnati, will provide best practices for effective correctional interventions; Mr. Richard Podguski, PA Board of Probation and Parole, will discuss effective community supervision strategies; and Melanie Snyder, Lancaster Reentry Management Organization (RMO) will offer effective county reentry planning guidelines.

The online registration is no longer available for 2016 Reentry Workshop.  If you have any questions, please call Ms. Denise Barry at (717) 265-8559 or via email at
