Governor’s Weekly Message: Reducing Recidivism by Expanding Job Training Efforts

Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights efforts to expand job training to offenders to reduce recidivism rates.

“One of the challenges to reducing recidivism across our state and around the country is the need to address the high levels of unemployment experienced by individuals who are involved in the criminal justice system and have completed their sentence of incarceration,” said Governor Markell. “By helping all Delawareans receive training they can use to build productive law-abiding lives, we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”
