Neighborhoods and Re-Entry in Detroit: Mapping Prison Data (2015)

"Understanding criminal justice-involved populations and their reentry is critical to understanding urban poverty. Nationwide, roughly 650,000 individuals return from state and federal prisons to their communities each year. This amounts to about 10,000 individuals returning a week or 75 individuals returning an hour. While these numbers may be hard to digest in the abstract, they have a profound impact on the communities to which individuals return—often low-income communities of color that are ill-equipped to confront the systemic barriers that impede successful reentry."
