The Urban Institute, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation partnered to convene a Reentry Roundtable on the topic of reentry from jails. This Roundtable focused attention on the 12 million individuals released from local jails each year and the associated challenges faced by individuals, families, and communities around the country. The Jail Reentry Roundtable aims to fill the gap in knowledge on this issue by commissioning papers, convening a diverse group of practitioners and researchers, conducting a "scan of practice" of jail reentry programs around the country, writing a national report on jail reentry, and developing a training curriculum geared toward jail administrators and correctional staff.
