(This amendment provides $152,388 general fund the first year and $135,405 general fund the second year for 3 transition specialists to coordinate institutional and community corrections services targeted at offenders being released from prison. Transition specialists insure that offenders are placed in the most appropriate programs that are available to them and reduce the probability of recidivism. This approach has proven successful in one Department of Corrections region and these funds will expand this program to the remaining three regions.)
