On the next Fresh Air, former New Orleans parole officer Jason Hardy talks about his four years on the job, where he struggled to help the 200 people in his caseload rebuild their lives. Many of them struggled with housing, health care, drug addiction, and job prospects. Hardy writes that our country’s failure to provide services for them after their release is the “single greatest missed opportunity in the entire criminal justice system.” His book is The Second Chance Club.
