The Los Angeles County Probation Department is partnering with the County and city of Los Angeles agencies and the Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership to host the “Shaking Up Reentry Conference” on May 30. The conference will focus on innovative strategies to coordinate and design reentry services for the adult justice involved population residing within L.A. County.
