Parole agents help parolees navigate reentry with video meetings

By DAPO staff

To minimize social contact and avoid the spread of COVID-19, the Northern Region Adult Program Unit (APU) began holding Peer Reentry Navigation Network (PRNN) meetings on Zoom.

Northern Region APU Parole Agent IIs, along with unit supervisors, parole unit staff, and lifers began meeting via Zoom in June 2020. These meetings are being conducted monthly at a date and time meeting the operational needs of the parole unit.

The PRNN Zoom meetings have been held throughout the Northern California parole districts including Central, Central Coast, East Bay, Sierra, South Bay, Southern, and West Bay.

The PRNN meetings are offered to continue addressing the risks and needs of lifers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The meetings are limited to relevant topics and feature presentations from community service providers or are open for group discussions.
