GEO Reentry to provide reentry programming at Clark County Detention Center

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has selected GEO Reentry Services to operate a reentry program in the Clark County Detention Center. Opened in September, the center can serve up to 40 inmates every three months before they are released to community supervision.

The LVMPD carefully screens inmates for the reentry program, which provides evidence-based programming and cognitive-behavioral therapy. The program is designed to change inmates’ criminal thinking and behavior and offers substance abuse treatment, educational and vocational services, family reunification and victim education classes, and a community connections program to connect participants with supportive services for housing, medical services or additional counseling.

GEO Reentry creates individual behavior change plans for each program participant at the Clark County Detention Center, after carefully assessing their risks and needs. Participants move through phases of treatment and training based on their performances and attitudes.

Not only will the reentry program at the Clark County Detention Center assist local correctional agencies with public safety efforts, it will stimulate the community by providing job opportunities for skilled professionals. The center will employ trained and experienced staff members, including a program director, substance abuse counselor, education and employment coordinator, and case manager.

GEO Reentry Services operates evidence-based in-custody treatment and training programs for correctional departments in many jurisdictions. The programs aim to prepare individuals for successful reentry and reduced recidivism.
