Closing Summary

The reach-in process is simple. Contacting the offender prior to release gives the supervising officer and the offender information that furthers the possibility of success during transition from custody to the community. Time is saved through a collaborated effort with the offender and the involved agencies and allows for an immediate case plan for action. The risk factors are reduced by holding the offender accountable to the responsibilities of their supervision and at the same time, reduce the fear and anxiety associated with not knowing what to expect.

The reach-in process is only a small segment of evidence based supervision techniques and the practitioner must consider the other components necessary to complete an evidence based supervision model. The reach-in process compliments identified evidence based practice approaches including motivational interviewing, risk/need assessment, treatment, and continuous quality improvement.
