R R I was set up with the aim of being the future of incarceration. The idea is reasonably simple: modern prisons do not work. The United States has less than 5 percent of the world's population. But it has almost a quarter of the world's prisoners. And this prison population is only growing.
It this increase is to be stopped - and not only stopped, but turned around - something new must be attempted.
And so, the Rehabilitation and Reintegration (R R I) was born. R R I believes that the path to reformation is through rehabilitation of those convicted. Several pilot schemes were set up around the USA. Entrants to each scheme have been hand picked, though their personalities, backgrounds, criminal records and other factors differ to ensure a cross section of the prison population.
This is one such pilot scheme. The location is kept secret from those inmates who are chosen for the program. ‘Chosen’ because they certainly are not volunteers, though few deny that the opportunity that R R I offers is certainly better than mainstream incarceration.
During their time in the R R I, inmates - or, as they are known as, residents - will be housed in a facility that will take care of all basic needs, as well as enriching everyone involved. There will be incentive programs. There will be some requirements for participation, but everyone will be able to work at their own pace, for the most part. R R I believes in team building exercises, as well as an overall sense of community.
Instead of a harsh environment that only ensures trauma to its population, R R I plans to create a living situation that truly will help those participating. By the time a resident exits the program, they should be happy, healthy, productive members of society.
In return for their successful participation in the program, residents are entitled to earlier consideration for parole. Also, when successfully paroled, R R I has arranged for residents to start a new life - even including a whole new identity.
R R I - giving people a clean slate. Truly a second chance.
They just have to get through the program...
