Program Description

Byrne JAG funds support four jail-based reentry programs that provide pre-release and reentry integrated mental health and substance abuse assessment, referral, case management, and/or services. One of these jail-based program, the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office, implements a Release Advance Planning (RAP) program using case planners to provide pre-release and reentry services. Success is measured, in part, by a reduction in jail bed days. Preliminary results showed an 80 percent reduction in jail bed days for those that had been out of the program one year.
