Portsmouth, Virginia – The Ctrl+Alt+Delete Program was implemented under the Portsmouth Commonwealth’s Attorney Office for citizens transitioning back into the community.

The program is designed to teach citizens the fundamentals of Restoration of Rights and Expungements.

It will also hold a candid discussion on Recidivism.

Other topics include Cover Letter and Resume Writing, Job Searching, Dress Code and Networking.

Ctrl+Alt+Delete will begin holding monthly seminars on July 25, 2015.

“As a prosecutor focused on justice and community safety, one issue I and my fellow prosecutors constantly battle is recidivism.  I commend everyone in our state and local community for their efforts to end recidivism. To me, a large part of that initiative involves welcoming our fellow citizens who have struggled back into the community and encouraging them to be productive citizens.  Restoring rights is one very important piece of that and I am proud to announce the kick off of our multi faceted Ctrl+Alt+Delete Program.  I urge our citizens to take advantage of this program which will be facilitated by myself and the attorneys and professionals of the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. ” – Stephanie N. Morales, Commonwealth’s Attorney
