In 2015, a cross system of county leaders, courts, agencies and community members formed a Recidivism Reduction and Reentry Policy Work Team to provide King County with technical assistance, as well as program and policy advice and support, in the development of a robust continuum of practices and interventions designed to reduce criminal justice involvement among our community members.
