The Diet enacted a bill Wednesday seeking government measures to help prevent criminal offenders from committing crimes again.

The law urges the central and local governments to take steps to help criminals released from prisons find residences and jobs.

The measures include giving preferential treatment in government projects to companies actively hiring such criminals.

The law also calls for providing proper health and medical services for drug addicts.

The lawmaker-sponsored bill won approval from the House of Councillors on Wednesday after clearing the House of Representatives last month.
