ABSTRACT
As part of a demonstration effort to build new partnerships focused on informal social controls, eight sites were involved in a U.S. Department of Justice sponsored Reentry Partnership Initiative. Using fidelity measuring techniques, the researchers assessed the degree to which different programmatic components were developed in the partnerships. The paper will report on network analysis results that define an organizational development required to move from a prison safety to public safety approach to reentry services. A discussion will occur of the requirements to integrate informal social controls into the operating models of reentry.
