In order to decrease the number of individuals incarcerated and under probation and parole supervision, the County of Santa Clara is focusing on developing a comprehensive effort that addresses the needs and risks of former offenders.  The County's Reentry Program represents a new way of doing business.

On March 1, 2011, the Board of Supervisors established a cross-system Re-Entry Network to develop and implement a reentry plan for the county.  The Network is expected to identify comprehensive reentry and recidivism reduction strategies to elevate existing efforts, streamline processes to link inmates to effective in-custody and community-based programming, identify cost-saving methods, and prepare Santa Clara County for the realignment of parolees and low-level prisoners under the Public Safety Realignment Act (AB109).

In an effort to reduce the number of offenders incarcerated in the California prison system and assist in alleviating the State's financial crisis, AB 109 was signed into law on April 4, 2011. Subsequently, on June 30, 2011, AB 117 was signed by Governor Brown, further outlining the provisions of Realignment. This Act shifts the responsibility for inmates convicted of non-serious, non-violent, non-sex offenses to local jurisdictions by requiring them to serve their sentence in local jails rather than in State prisons, pursuant to the newly added Penal Code §1170(h). All inmates serving local sentences will now come under the post-release supervision of local agencies, Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) offenders. Additionally, this legislation changes the sentencing laws to keep these offenders from being committed to State prisons.

The Reentry Resource Center: 10 Years of Community Collaboration

The County of Santa Clara Reentry Resource Center celebrates 10 years of serving more than 20,000 unique clients in 100,000 visits since the Center opened in 2012. Today, more than nine County Departments offer services onsite and the Center partners with dozens of community-based organizations to provide clients with the services they need to successfully reestablish themselves in the community.

The Reentry Resource Center has created a robust network of County departments, community-based organizations, and city and law enforcement representatives that work collectively to provide critical services such as public benefits, medical care, behavioral health services, social and emotional wellbeing programs, faith-based services, legal assistance, and alternative supervision programs that allow individuals to complete their sentences in the community. These champions of Reentry are working collaboratively to help empower Santa Clara County residents exiting incarceration to create healthy, happy and productive lives.
