Former felons rehabilitate in special program with police that put them in jail
Convicted felons are coming face-to-face with the police officers who arrested them at a special support group called CLEAR.
The C.L.E.A.R. (Coalition.Leadership.Education.Accountability.Rehabilitation) group is a voluntary program consisting of police, MDOC employees, and returning citizens to figure out what’s next in life beyond bars. The meetings are held at 70×7 Muskegon years after their time is served.
“With a lot of us returning home, part of the reason we went to prison is because we have authority problems,” said Nate Johnson, Reentry director at 70×7 Muskegon.
