Outcomes Report Released for Dauphin County Reentry Service Center

HARRISBURG — GEO Reentry Services has released an outcomes report for the Dauphin County Reentry Service Center. For more than a decade, GEO Reentry has operated the RSC for the Dauphin County Probation Department. This report assesses data points for 132 participants who entered the program in calendar year 2022. It finds very positive attendance rates, more than 1,000 drug tests administered and only 16% positives, and employment gains of 110% for discharged participants. Importantly, when assessing a sample 34 program participants during this year, there was a 36% risk reduction as measured by the LSI-R.

Opened in early 2014, the Dauphin County RSC is one of several locations opened throughout Pennsylvania by GEO Reentry as part of a state initiative to reduce recidivism and the high cost of incarceration. The Dauphin County RSC provides a structured combination of evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatment, life skills training, case management, workforce development, and community connections designed to change criminal thinking.
