About this Quote

This quote by Bobby Scott recommends that supplying prisoners with educational, vocational, and job training chances, in addition to programs to help them develop work skills, address drug abuse, and receive mental health treatment, can have a substantial impact on minimizing recidivism. Simply put, these programs can help prisoners become more effective in their lives after they are released from jail. This is supported by studies that have actually shown that inmates who participate in these kinds of programs are less likely to reoffend than those who do not. By offering inmates with the resources and assistance they require to become productive members of society, we can help in reducing recidivism and produce a more secure and more just society.
