A Transitional Re-entry Advisory Committee (TRAC) has been formed to assist ex-offenders with successful re-entry into the community. The committee is comprised of various non-profit partners, educational institutions, employers, law enforcement and community agencies. The goal of the committee is to help individuals “stay on track” by improving their lives through education, employment, support services and a reduced rate of recidivism. TRAC will hold a meeting at 10:00 am on July 26 at the Penn Traffic Building Conference Room located at 319 Washington Street, downtown. The committee is inviting employers to participate to assist with providing job search advice and options for employment.
