The sixth annual All-Sites Summit will feature training relevant to the breadth of Adult Redeploy Illinois (ARI) programs. This year’s summit will focus on peer learning around innovations at ARI sites, community reintegration, and partnerships.
The summit will include plenary and breakout sessions, a rollout of the “Community Involvement Toolkit” project (featuring 13 ARI innovations from across the state), updates from ARI sites, and time for networking.
Those expected to attend are a spectrum of ARI site stakeholders including but not limited to judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation staff and supervisors, law enforcement, program coordinators, researchers, program partners, and policymakers.
Summit content is structured for relevancy to a broad group of stakeholders. In addition to current ARI program representation, planning grantees and interested jurisdictions can participate and have previously benefited from exposure to current ARI programs and system-wide training.
Adult Redeploy Illinois is a state initiative providing funding and technical assistance to local jurisdictions to support the diversion of non-violent offenders from prison to more effective and less expensive community-based supervision and services.
ARI sites use grant funds to design and implement local programs that address offenders' risks and needs and leverage their assets (family support, employment) to improve public safety and offender outcomes. ARI has grown from five initial pilot sites in early 2011, to the current 20 sites implementing 39 programs covering 39 Illinois counties (as of March 2017).
The 2017 ARI All-Sites Summit will offer peer learning around innovations at ARI sites, community reintegration, and partnerships. Expected topics include community involvement in local ARI programs, veterans courts, reducing employment barriers through criminal records relief, restorative justice, and more.
