CDCR Report

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation earlier this week released its 2010 Adult Institutions Outcome Evaluation Report.  Some interesting findings:

  • 67.5% of felons released in 2005-06 returned to prison within three years
  • Inmates committed for property crimes have the highest overall, three-year recidivism rate (71.9%)
  • Recidivism rates are highest for inmates who serve 19 to 24 months (71.5%)
  • Race/ethnicity appears to be related to recidivism rates for inmates released for the first time, but not for those who previously failed while on parole

The SF Chronicle has this story on the study.
