- Society · U.S. government

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.
