Tennessee Reentry Collaborative (TREC)
The Tennessee Reentry Collaborative (TREC) is a TDOC initiative aimed at creating pathways for parolees, probationers, and inmates as they transition back into society, utilizing the resources available within communities.
TREC is a joint effort that brings together state, local, and non-profit agencies, all working to address the reentry needs of individuals. By fostering partnerships and collective efforts, this initiative provides solutions that promote successful reintegration and reduce recidivism rates.
If you are interested in learning more about TREC or would like to get involved, reach out to a regional administrator.

TREC was established in October 2004, after the Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) re-established the Division of Rehabilitative Services. Leadership at the Department of Correction and the Board of Parole recognized the need to further assist offenders with successfully transitioning to their communities. They also realized that a collaborative approach involving multiple agencies of state and local government, faith-based organizations, and private service providers would be needed if we were to improve public safety by better preparing offenders for reentry. It was from this realization that TREC was established.
