Recently, three agencies, Shelby County Corrections Center Re-entry, Second Chance and the Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole, have combined to help incarcerated felons get life-skills training and find work after their release from prison. On May 30, 2012, the Office of Re-entry opened its doors, located at 600 Adams.
This Office will provide seamless service for individuals seeking a second opportunity at gainful employment. The idea for the joint office originated with the Operation: Safe Community initiative. The pilot program will involve about 200 felons, all within six months to a year of release and selected based on their disciplinary history. For more information, please call 545-0343.
