Corrections and Rehabilitation Launches “Tablets for Reentry” Project
The Montgomery County Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has launched a new pilot program to improve the outcomes for inmates reentering the community. The pilot is being implemented at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility where 30 “Reentry Tablets” have been distributed to inmates. While tablet technology has already entered into correctional education classrooms, this first-of-a-kind pilot program supports a new foundation of contemporary corrections by bridging technology with reentry services and inmate programs. The pilot is entirely grant-funded through the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention in Maryland with no cost to local taxpayers.
