THE COST OF PROLIFIC OFFENDERS ON THE LOCAL ECONOMY
The economic development of any community relies upon its reputation as a safe, viable region in which to locate and do business.
RECOMMENDATION TO BC GOVERNMENT:
1. Work in coordination with the Federal Government to provide adequate budgetary support for offenders to receive treatment while incarcerated and for post-release housing and programming of prolific offenders to ensure successful societal reintegration and safer communities; and, 2. Combine resources with the Federal Government to ensure the efficacy of programs such as the Integrated Court Services Plan.
