Description & History

The goal of Project Redirect is to reduce recidivism and enhance community safety, while providing a cost effective alternative to incarceration – estimated at $40,000.00 for each one of the approximate twenty participants in Project Redirect annually – a savings to New York State of about $800,000.00 per year.

The program includes:

  • Mandatory supervised weekly group meetings with staff in the Gang Bureau
  • Life skills and anger management group sessions
  • Weekly testing to determine that all participants are drug free
  • Substance abuse counseling when necessary
  • Nightly curfew checks
  • Community service
  • Required completion of High School or GED
  • Employment and higher education
