Gwinnett Re-Entry Intervention Program (GRIP)
Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the United Way of Greater Atlanta and formed the Gwinnett Re-entry Intervention Program (GRIP). This program strives to reduce recidivism by pairing individuals exiting incarceration with community resources to assist them in becoming self-sufficient. GRIP provides them access to resources such as shelter, drug treatment, job skills training, mental health treatment, employment, and housing. GRIP’s primary objective is to provide assistance to inmates while they are incarcerated and help prepare them to make the transition from the jail to the community. The Intervention Services Section is made up of the staff and programs assigned to take place outside of the jail. The primary focus of the Intervention Services Section is to keep individuals from coming to jail or being re-arrested.
