Beltrami’s Jail recidivism reduction program wins AMC award

Beltrami County was one of four recipients of an outstanding program award from the Association of Minnesota Counties.

According to a release, Beltrami County’s Reset program is a jail recidivism reduction model, created to give inmates tools for success through case management support with a social worker.

This supportive model focuses on access to health care and other potential assistance, housing and employment resources, and mental health and substance use disorder needs, among other factors that support success in personal and community life.

Around 70 people have gone through the program, according to the release.
