TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback is having events in four Kansas communities this week to promote corrections programs designed to help offenders return to productive lives after their time behind bars.

The events begin Tuesday morning with a tour and question-and-answer session for reporters at Johnson County’s minimum-security residential center for adult offenders in New Century.

The governor plans to travel Wednesday morning to the state’s maximum-security prison outside El Dorado to have a news conference about programs designed to prevent inmates from becoming repeat offenders.

Brownback plans to be at the state prison in Ellsworth at noon Wednesday to highlight community partnerships that assist inmates there.

And the governor has scheduled a Thursday afternoon news conference at the Statehouse to highlight a mentoring program for juvenile offenders.
