The overall mission of the Re-entry programs offered by the 利县 拘留所 (LCDF) is

2019年10月, re-entry pods were developed for both male and female inmates with the ability to house approximately 60 males and 48 females. These pods provide pre-release services to inmates to assist in restructuring their mindset and focus for re-entering society.

Inviting local businesses to hire formerly incarcerated:
2021年2月, 33 local business partners signed a “Pledge of Support” to hire formerly incarcerated inmates, 超过原定目标25人. With the help of business owners willingness to hire formerly incarcerated individuals, they gave the opportunity for them to become productive members of society and the ability to provide for themselves and their family.

Re-entry efforts will bring newly released inmates together with the necessary resources for moving from being incarcerated into being a productive citizen able to give back to the community. 通过就业, taking care of personal responsibilities, 以及个人成长, these individuals will have a greater chance of not making the same negative life choices.
