The Day Reporting and Reentry Division helps reintegrate offenders back into the community following release from jail. The division provides offenders with support mechanisms needed to transition successfully back in to the community, while at the same time monitoring their activity to prevent recidivism.

The Division works with the offenders to identify and address underlying problems such as substance abuse, joblessness, and/or mental illness which may have contributed to their criminal behavior.

The program begins while offenders are serving their sentence in jail. A supervision and reentry plan is designed and a compliance contract is signed. The plan includes the level of supervision, community service hours, job search, counseling, training, daily schedules, and any court-ordered conditions. Once released from jail, supervision specialists monitor each offender's activity in the community through random checks at their residence or place of employment based on daily itineraries each offender is required to complete and comply with. The offenders are also placed on an electronic monitor providing an added level of security.

The Division has a menu of services available on-site and referral resources off-site to address the offender's needs. A case manager works with the offender to build these services into their daily schedules and then monitors their compliance. The reentry plan is designed to address each offender's specialized needs. Offenders have access to employment readiness classes, support group meetings, treatment referrals, life skills, financial planning and budgeting, literacy programs, GED/ABE classes and stress and anger management programs.

Broward Reentry Portal

The Broward Reentry Portal is a comprehensive post-custody reentry program for offenders released from the Florida Department of Corrections penal institutions who are returning to live in Broward County. The Reentry Center is designed to be a one-stop shop for a variety of programs and services. It is a partnership between BSO, the Florida Department of Corrections, the Broward Reentry Coalition and other community providers to help remove some of the barriers to successful community reentry and to provide formerly incarcerated persons the support they need to restructure their lives, become self-sufficient and achieve success. The Center provides in-reach into the prisons to begin the discharge planning process, conducts risk/needs assessment, criminal registration, comprehensive case planning, employability skills, job placement and retention, life skills, mentoring, family reunification, housing assistance, transportation assistance and other services based on program participant needs and willingness to participate. These services are intended to maximize offender success in reintegration into the community, reduce recidivism and increase public safety.
