The Warrant Reduction Advocacy Project (WRAP) reconnects probationers with probation officers and the courts through community-based partnerships that avoid needless, costly bench warrants and arrests. The program is a partnership with a local visiting and assistance program for inmates and their families. Based on referrals from probation officers, contact is made with the offender, learning the reason for their behavior and facilitating a reconnection with probation and the courts. Staff is often in a better position to assist these individuals, having established a positive relationship with them during incarceration. WRAP specialists also assist the individual with peer and support groups and after-care case management. WRAP allows probation officers to better allocate time and resources toward supervision of high-risk offenders, while averting needless bench warrants and frees law enforcement for critically needed patrol and investigation duties. In addition, probationers report feeling greater hope, optimism and motivation after contact with WRAP.
