Parole Re-Entry Court

The Public Defender’s Office staffs the Alameda County parole re-entry court which was established in September 2010. The parole re-entry court is designed to meet the needs of high risk parolees who are in violation status, with the goal of reducing recidivism and re-offense rates. The re-entry court integrates evidence based treatment practices to address substance abuse and or/mental health problems, in addition to providing wrap around social services to parolees.

The parole re-entry court has a collaborative team approach that includes a regularly assigned Judge, Public Defender and District Attorney, along with Parole Agents and Case Managers. The team meets on a weekly basis to discuss cases before the court date. Enhanced monitoring of the parolees by the case managers and parole agents, along with regularly scheduled court dates for the parolee where he/she meets with the entire re-entry team aids in the goal of reducing recidivism, thus promoting public safety.
