From Segregation to Population

We have been talking about it for months; reducing segregation. But we thought if you could see it, maybe it would help explain how we are achieving this! When Secretary Marcantel and our staff made a commitment to reduce the use of segregation, we had to look at who is living in segregation, why and do they need to still be there?

One group we have focused on is our former gang members who have denounced their membership, followed the rules and have been programming. The restoration to population program was created to help these men, some of whom have have lived in segregation for years, out of Level VI and into a general population setting when they can receive more indepth and longer programming and group therapy sessions.
 
Take a look at just some of these men and the changes they have undergone as you follow them from Level VI to Level III.
