Belmont Correctional Institution Creates "Re-Intergration Unit" To Ease Prisoners Back Into Civilian Life
It's a long way from being an
inmate in prison to becoming a productive member of society, so the
Belmont Correctional Institution has created a re-integration unit to
ease prisoners back into the swing of work, family, productivity, and
It's not an easy program, as the prisoners may work 8 to 12 hours a
day; or, do 90 hours of community service a quarter. But, officials say the programs cuts
down on repeat offenders.
Their goal is to ease them into civilian life
gradually, instead of dropping them abruptly outside the prison walls.
Officials say Ohio is going to be a safer place because of the program.
