Dedicated to authentic transformation in the lives of our participants, the Academy has invested in staff from all walks of life who represent all facets of the criminal justice system: corrections, law enforcement, legislators, the formerly incarcerated, business owners, civic leaders, researchers and tenured re-entry providers. This all-encompassing approach serves as a comprehensive resource while we work to identify the needs of Academy participants, as well as those of the communities to which they return.
