The purpose of Community Offender Probation and Education (COPE) Unit is to assist prison releasees reentering society. This brochure has been put together with you and your family in mind. The definition of opportunity is, "a good chance for advancement or progress." By serving your time, you've reached a fork in the road and you have the opportunity to leave the past behind you.
