Rocklin Event Center to Host Parolees and Probationers Event

SCOE's Placer County Re-entry Program (PREP) Center Hosts Graduation August 9

Rocklin, CA - The transition from prison life to life beyond prison is a challenging one for men and women on parole or probation. Many parolees struggle to find success. However, more than 50 members of the 2017 graduating class of the Placer County Re-entry Program (PREP) Center are being honored for successfully meeting enormous personal challenges. They are completing core components of an innovative transition program for probationers and parolees who are making successful transitions back into their communities. In addition to honoring the graduates, the PREP Center will recognize many Placer County agencies that are part of this pioneering program.

The program is a collaborative effort between the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), the Placer County Probation Department, the Placer County Sheriff's Department and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.  This innovative program serves county probationers, those released and participating in electronic monitoring, and state parolees.

When: Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Where: Rocklin Event Center, 2650 Sunset Blvd, Rocklin, CA 95677
