The goal of the Office of Transitional Services is to implement a seamless continuum of care for offenders utilizing cost-effective, proven practices system wide that increase offenders’ abilities and motivation to practice responsible, crime-free behavior. The Office of Transitional Services has oversight over the transitional and social services programs within the department. The office has developed partnerships with federal, state and local agencies for creating linkages to resources that provide support to returning offenders.
Our vision is that every offender released from prison will be prepared to reenter society as a productive, law-abiding citizen of New Jersey.
Our mission is to enhance public safety by reducing the risk that offenders will reoffend and return to prison by providing comprehensive services from the time they enter prison through their reintegration back into society.
