Me and PPRS
After 30 years in healthcare I wanted to give back to the community by using my experience with patient care to effect positive change through the PSR, and in turn at the sentencing hearing. I found that the PSR can not only be used as a medical referral for placement, but also as a means to make a security placement recommendation. Personally, if I can positively change a defendant’s/inmates future, then I would be grateful for that opportunity.
Further, should your client wish to make positive change for themselves and their families future, the PSR can provide this pathway, reducing their recidivism. How? By preparing defendants for reentry, starting the process before sentencing – prison matching the defendant according to an existing interest they may have in either obtaining a college degree or learning an occupational trade.
A positive example of breaking the recidivism paradigm:
In 2017 a friend emailed me a link to the Last Mile. Briefly; at San Quentin State Prison they started a program that is preparing “incarcerated individuals for successful reentry through business and technology training”.

Reducing recidivism, having a felony record and second chances
We can all agree that leaving prison with a “felony” on record disqualifies offenders from most jobs in our current workforce. The existing disclosure requirement that appears on most employment applications inhibits those affected from moving forward with their lives, thus contributing to this recidivism paradigm.
While slowly changing, our society’s current reality is that once released, they are still facing this challenge every day. Instead, it should be considered that once someone has paid for their crime, they be given a second chance. How states are working to reduce recidivism among ex-offenders.
Some states have removed barriers for ex-offenders, but in federal cases nationwide these challenges still exist. Utah was one of at least three states that enacted legislation this year making it easier to expunge a criminal record. States also moved to make it easier for ex-offenders to get professional licenses and to limit the penalties ex-offenders and others face for not paying court fines and fees.
