  • Getting inmates back on track

    Boston Globe - 11/21/2014

    The Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office has been a trailblazer in this regard, Cabral said. Its inmate reentry program received $335,000 in federal grant funding in both 2010 and 2011 from the Second Chance Act. The program seeks to identify repeat offenders and link them with social service programs like North Cottage. It provides treatment and education in areas like anger management, substance abuse, and domestic violence.

    By April 2015, Bellotti hopes to have hard numbers to back up his office’s success stories. The Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Northeastern University to conduct a study on two groups of inmates who were incarcerated in 2011 and 2013, respectively. The study aims to track these inmates’ progress after release and draw comparisons between those who have participated in inmate reentry programs and those who have not.
