Find Out How Tulare County Maintains

Recidivism Rates Below State Levels

Located in the San Joaquin Valley, Tulare County is known as an innovative epicenter for job training and a proponent of lowering recidivism rates. The Tulare County Readiness for Employment through Sustainable Education and Training (RESET) program has made waves as a unique reentry initiative that consistently posts lower-than-average recidivism rates for justice-involved individuals.

A Focus on Partnerships

Recognizing that a focus on reentry services improves recidivism rates, the Tulare County Probation Department and Tulare County Workforce Investment Board partnered in 2014 to form the Tulare County RESET Program. These partners collaborated with Geographic Solutions to develop the Tulare County RESET Portal, a locally-branded workforce development website that facilitates the process of employing justice-involved individuals after release from jail or prison. The site allows program participants to use all of the features found in the statewide job search site known as CalJOBS - on a secure platform.
