Pinellas County, FL – In 2009, the County Sheriff began working to implement strategies at the County Jail that will assess the job, housing, and substance abuse treatment needs of inmates in order to reduce recidivism (i.e., rate of repeat arrests). FAST worked with the Sheriff to develop a plan to improve the intake process and tracking system for inmates.
