Transition

Numerous studies focusing on the cycle of recidivism argue that stable employment is a strong indicator of preventing criminal activity, specifically for those who have been incarcerated. With this in mind, the Transition Program, an initiative of the Department of Corrections - Bureau of Correctional Enterprises (BCE) is designed to help inmate workers capitalize on work experience and skills acquired during incarceration and to aid in employment readiness for post-incarceration.
