Research Interests

Hicks is interested in the needs of individuals exiting incarceration, as well as the role of aftercare programs in addressing these needs, reducing recidivism, and allowing for successful integration back into the community. However, very few jail aftercare programs exist. While there is research support for aftercare programs with prison populations, little research has examined the specific needs of jail populations post-release. Hicks hopes to research the needs of jail populations specifically, as well as work toward developing an aftercare program that addresses these needs and works to reduce recidivism.
