Agenda Item No. 3 – Reports from Community Advisory Sub-Committees:
Agenda Item No. 4 – Singapore’s Yellow Ribbon Project: Division Chief Stefan LoBuglio presented slides and video clips from his recent visit to Singapore in September, 2007. He participated in several events organized by the country’s prison service and community organizations to promote prisoner rehabilitation and reintegration. Introduced in 2004 and called the Yellow Ribbon Project, the three stated goals of the project are to create public awareness that 13,000 prisoners are released from prison annually; public acceptance of these individuals back into their communities; and action to better prepare inmates for their return home. During his visit (the expenses of which he paid for himself), Stefan participated in a walk in support of returning prisoners that was attended by 10,000 ex-prisoners, family members, school children, and other citizens and led by the Prime Minister and the National Prison director. Additionally, he participated in a day-long conference and visited several prisons and public safety facilities. At the Community Advisory Board meeting, he presented slides of his visit along with short video clips that the Singapore Prison Service developed as part of their public campaign to promote the Yellow Ribbon Project. His visit reciprocated a visit paid in March 2007 by the head of the prison service and his staff to PRRS.
