The County’s Department of Correction and Rehabilitation was recently recognized on the Public Broadcasting Station’s (PBS) “Broken Justice” series. The program highlights three individuals transitioning from incarceration and the re-entry services which support community integration into meaningful employment.
The re-entry program, initiated by a partnership of the County’s WorkSource Investment Board and DOCR connects the County’s correctional facilities and the American Job Center WorkSource system. This unique and innovative approach to facilitating offender reemployment creates an American Job Center within the walls of the Montgomery County Correctional Facility that is linked to the existing community-based American Job Centers.
