On March 7, 2018, President Trump issued an executive order that launched the Federal Interagency Council on Crime Prevention and Improving Reentry. The Order formed the new council to “provide those who have engaged in criminal activity with greater opportunities to lead productive lives,” by identifying strategies to reduce both crime and recidivism through programs that address “mental health, vocational training, job creation, after-school programming, substance abuse, and mentoring” for people who have been incarcerated [1].

The Council is comprised of the following Administration officials and federal entities:

Co-Chair: Attorney General

Co-Chair: Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy

Co-Chair: Senior Advisor to the President in charge of the White House Office of American Innovation
