Martin Figueroa is Parole Agent Supervisor with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation supervising one of the largest groups of former inmates on parole in the United States. His work includes supervising a large group of peace officers who monitor parolees and focus on rehabilitation, as well as the enforcement of laws. As part of this rehabilitation process, State Parole facilitates one of the only lifer mentoring groups in North America, which has received national recognition.

In 2002, Figueroa was hired by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Adult Parole Operations as a Parole Agent I (i.e., Peace Officer, State of California) and assigned to the San Francisco Parole Unit. Early on, he identified the dual role of a Parole Agent—to help enforce the laws for the good of public safety while also working to ensure ex-offenders successfully re-integrate into society. Figueroa was later assigned to the sex offender unit, as well as other assignments, including supervising violent offenders, those with mental health issues, and long-term offenders.

Figueroa holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Holy Names University. He graduated from SCI’s Public Safety Leadership Program (PSLP) in 2018. He was also the recipient of a certificate and award for exemplary work promoting Victim’s Right from the State of California, Office of Victim’s Services, as well as a 2019 award from the Jefferson Awards Foundation for Public Service.

Thank you for your service!

Los Angeles Police Department Commander Marc Reina is the Commanding Officer of Central Area, the largest command of the 21 geographical patrol divisions in Los Angeles. A recent graduate of SCI's Public Safety Leadership Program, Comdr. Reina has vast experience in dealing with community issues, has been an advocate for child welfare, and has worked closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for many years. He has also worked with other law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, during joint, in-depth investigations.

Comdr. Reina is committed to strengthening relationships between the LAPD and the community it serves. To this end, he educates elementary students and young adults regarding personal safety and career opportunities in the law enforcement. He worked with USC staff to create an internship program, which allows graduate Social Work students to team with LAPD officers and conduct outreach, and enhance collaboration among service providers in the Skid Row area of downtown. This program is the only one of its kind within the LAPD. Thank you Commander Reina for your service!
