CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State officials are hoping a program called “Transition from Prison to Community” will keep the public safe and reduce prison costs.

The program is focused on reducing return trips through the justice system while easing inmates into freedom.

Kayla Opdahl with the state Department of Corrections says the agency hopes the program helps end the cycle of offenders constantly returning to prison and wasting funding and services.

The program has been in place since November 2009.

The program includes building résumés, finding housing and teaching inmates about new technology that developed while they were behind bars.

Opdahl goes on to say that another facet is having the inmates involved with their own re-entry planning.
