Reentry

Ex-Offender Reentry Initiative

Department Of Justice Seal

United States Attorney’s Office

District of Delaware 

“Reintegrating ex-offenders successfully into the community is an

important part of any public safety plan. There are significant benefits

if returning citizens abandon their life of crime and become productive

citizens – neighborhoods are safer, these ex-offenders can contribute

and be a positive influence for their families, and taxpayer money

saved from incarcerating them can be used for crime prevention, social

service and other programs benefiting the public.”

Acting US Attorney David C. Weiss

During the last six (6) years, the  U.S. Attorney’s Office has participated in forms of offender notification sessions to persons either on probation or supervised release, as well as in gun and gang violence prevention presentations to detained youth. Additionally, since its first session in September 2012, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has been a member of the U.S. District Court’s Reentry Court Program. Members of the District Court’s Reentry Court Team include a United States Magistrate Judge, the U.S. Probation Office, the Federal Public Defender’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  The Program seeks to prevent persons who are reentering society from their incarceration from re-offending and to  increase  public safety. Also, the Program  works to improve the ability of participants to manage their lives constructively and productively. The Program endeavors to achieve these goals by the provision of concerted programming, enhanced access to services, regular interactive sessions before a judicial officer, and a system of rewards and sanctions.
