CURE-SORT Summary on this Presentation: 

Over 1,000 participants participated in this first of a series to address ways to assist one with a sex offense who is returning to the community. Research shows that re-arrest figures are more likely to be a non-sex crime and that supervision violations are high.  

Those working with this population have found a daunting task in developing comprehensive reentry strategies which meet the countless difficult hurdles a person with a sex offense faces upon release.  

The webinar presented those participating, which included criminal justice professionals, parole and probation agents, corrections professionals, reentry professionals and advocates, with statistics, information about the population being emphasized, barriers and challenges faced by this population, and a plan to assist those professionals responsible for assisting those with a sex offense as they transition into the community.
