A significant rethinking of approaches and capabilities is required to help ex-convicts remain crime-free for a longer period, said Second Minister for Home Affairs Josephine Teo on Monday (Jul 18). Currently, about 40 per cent of ex-offenders return to prison within five years of their release. The Home Team is shifting its focus to lowering the five-year recidivism rate by providing more support for inmates through their reintegration journey. Tan Si Hui tells us more.
