Keeping people safe

Prisons play a crucial role in protecting the safety of our communities. They provide a secure environment where inmates can prepare to successfully reenter society as productive citizens. Over 93 percent of the inmates who enter our state prison system will return to our communities. In Nebraska’s correctional facilities inmates participate in pro-social activities, gain new skills, work toward degrees, and earn their diplomas. These tools and opportunities give them a second chance to transform their lives.
