Re-Entry Initiative

The LPD is partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Correction to develop a re-entry project that is geared towards increasing the awareness and involvement of neighborhood officers in successful offender transition.  The LPD is working wit the Department of Correction and community organizations in Lowell to identify local resources that may assist offenders in successfully reestablishing themselves in the community.

The Reentry Partnership Initiative (RPI) is a corrections, law enforcement, and community-based program that seeks to improve risk management of released offenders by enhancing surveillance and monitoring, strengthening individual and community support systems, and repairing the harm done to victims.  This initiative is part of an ambitious effort by sponsoring Federal agencies to help address the continuing problem of offenders returning to the community after incarceration with little or no surveillance, accountability or resource investment (NIJ, 1999).
