Will supervisors extend Reentry Council? 

For years, a group of The City’s policy experts on criminal justice have been working on a way to make the transition from jail or prison to a regular productive life easier, thus reducing the chances that those former inmates will again commit crime.

The Reentry Council — a diverse group composed of prosecutors, defense lawyers, probationers and even reformed criminals — could be coming to an end unless the Board of Supervisors extends its sunset date.

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi will lead a hearing at Thursday’s Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee to do just that. The committee will also be discussing a list of recommendations from the council’s annual report.

If the life of the council is extended to 2014, some spots should be available for any civic-minded person to join in and have a say in The City’s future.

Applicants should fill out this form with their interest and contact the Reentry Council before March 7.
