Crime Summit Discusses Re-entry Management

More than 35 residents attended the Lancaster County Crime Summit meeting on Thursday morning at the Public Safety Training Center on Champ Road, Manheim.

Re-entry management of formerly incarcerated persons was the main topic. When offenders are released from prison, they need a place to live and a place to work. Housing and jobs were just some of the problems discussed at Thursday's public meeting.

A general discussion of the many problems facing those leaving prison produced many ideas.

Lancaster County Commissioner Scott Martin is leading the discussion. District Attorney Craig Stedman attended Thursday morning's session.

The Summit continues through Friday.
