(Cite as: 28 V.S.A. § 721)
  • § 721. Offender reintegration; State policy

    The Department shall establish an offender reintegration process that requires offenders to be held accountable to their victims and the community. This process shall provide opportunities for victims of crime and other members of the community to participate in reentry programs under section 2a of this title and to allow for victims and members of the communities to provide input to the Department as provided for in subsection 104(a) of this title. Such input shall include the nature of the planned supervision, the offender’s work and education needs, the potential impact to the victim(s) of the offender’s presence in the community, and the opportunities to make use of the offender’s abilities within the community. An offender who participates in the reintegration process provided for in this subchapter may be placed in the community under the Department’s supervision for the remainder of the sentence if the Department is satisfied that the offender is demonstrating progress in his or her reentry programs and that the offender does not present an unreasonable risk to his or her victims or to the community at large. (Added 2001, No. 61, § 89; amended 2001, No. 142 (Adj. Sess.), § 170c, eff. June 16, 2002.)
