TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The local U.S. Attorney’s Office has launched a federal prison re-entry program aimed at helping people with felony convictions reclaim their lives.

Dubbed “Fresh Start,” the program will provide resources for jobs, housing and counseling services.

Tulsa-based U.S. Attorney Danny C. Williams Sr. says the re-entry program is another component of U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder’s “Smart on Crime” initiative.

Initial participants in the program will be GPS-monitored individuals from the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and people on a parolee status. Later, the state’s participation in the federally-sponsored program will expand to include those who are on probation.

The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Probation Office and the DOC are all participating in the program.
