PUBLIC SAFETY, ECONOMIC and SOCIAL. Community safety is enhanced, the costs of incarceration
are reduced and when supported, people can become productive members of the community and are
less likely to re-offend when they are helped with housing.
Why should I care?
National statistics show that 3 out of 4 returning offenders will re-offend within three
years. We can continue to spend over $31,000 a year to return re-offenders to prison OR
work with them to develop better ways of living that will NOT violate community safety.
