Gennady Malkov, Head of the Penitentiary Institution of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Tambov Region, held a working meeting with Dmitry Polukhtin, Chairman of the Tambov Regional Public Organization “Society of Sobriety and Health”. During the dialogue, the parties discussed the possibility of receiving qualified outpatient care for convicts suffering from gambling, alcohol or drug addiction and undergoing inpatient rehabilitation in a specialized center.
It should be noted that one of the main tasks of the criminal executive inspectorate is the prevention of re-crime among convicts serving sentences without isolation from society. Experience in this area shows that the reason contributing to the commission of crimes is often the use of psychoactive substances. Following the meeting, a draft cooperation agreement was prepared.
– Cooperation in this direction is especially important for us, since any type of assistance rendered to a convict helps to prevent a second crime on his part and to preserve a full-fledged member of society. It is especially useful to provide assistance to those convicts who have embarked on the path of correction, but due to the current life circumstances cannot independently solve their problems, which often pushes them again to commit illegal actions, ” explained Gennady Malkov, head of the Penitentiary Institute of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Tambov Region.
