Améliorer le sort des délinquants

Dans les institutions correctionnelles du monde entier, l’objectif de réduction de récidivisme figure en
tête de liste des priorités stratégiques et opérationnelles. En tant qu’entreprise qui voyage à travers le monde et rencontre
régulièrement les dirigeants d’institutions correctionnelles, nous sommes souvent en contact avec des idées et
des approches novatrices pour relever ce défi important et améliorer les résultats pour les délinquants
au fur et à mesure qu’ils se réinsèrent dans la société. Nous croyons qu’il est utile de partager cette
information avec notre réseau correctionnel mondial.

Chaque institution et chaque juridiction est différente, et les approches, qui peuvent fonctionner pour certains, peuvent
ne pas convenir à d’autres. Nous partageons ces renseignements à titre de service public à l’intention de
notre communauté correctionnelle. Abilis n’a pas écrit ou contribué de quelque façon
que ce soit aux différents messages ci-dessous.
