The Florida Policy Project has released a report outlining recommendations for caring for veterans in state prisons and addressing their reentry into society.
Former Republican State Senator Jeff Brandes is the founder of the Florida Policy Project and a veteran himself.
“Florida’s known as one of the most veteran-friendly states in the nation. That should extend to those that are incarcerated as well,” Brandes told the ABC Action News I-Team. “While, of course, they’re going to serve time, separated from society, we want them to leave the prison system better than they came in, and they should have all of the services that are available to them, offered to them while they’re incarcerated.”
