Outcomes Report: Lumberton CRV, Robeson County, NC

North Carolina Department of Corrections | February 2018

The Justice Reinvestment Act of 2011 led to significant changes in sentencing laws in North Carolina, changes that led to revisions in practices set 20 years prior. The state decided, rather than returning technical probation violators to incarceration with no services, to return violators to unique in-custody facilities for in-prison programming for up to 90 days. In analyzing 480 program participants in 2017, this report explores how North Carolina's Confinement in Response to Violation Center in Lumberton has reduced criminal thinking significantly between pre- and post-treatment.

Outcomes Report: Kern County, CA

Kern County Probation | January 2018

Assessing outcomes data is an important factor in evaluating the value of a reentry program for a jurisdiction. The Kern County Probation Department, with the assistance of its Research, Analysis and Data Unit, reviewed outcomes data from its Day Reporting Center program over a two-year period. The DRC, a non-residential program designed for medium- to high-risk probationers, achieved positive results in the study. Assessing three groups: DRC graduates; probationers who had received at least 90 days of programming; and a control group that received no DRC services, found only 30% of graduates recidivated while the control group recidivated at a 53% rate. Additionally, the data showed graduates who did recidivate were typically convicted of lesser offenses than the other groups assessed.

Outcomes Report: Illinois Reentry Service Centers

Illinois Department of Corrections | November 2017

The Illinois DOC funds reentry service centers statewide for parolees returning to community life. In these RSC programs, parolees receive evidence-based programming, including cognitive behavioral treatment, in a non-residential setting. A key to a participants’ success is reducing their level of risk. GEO Reentry Services, which operates the RSC programs, uses the LSI-R tool to assess risk levels. This study, assessing 253 program participants in five RSCs, found that their risk levels had dropped 13% in assessed risk when they participated in RSC programming. For parolees who completed the program, their assessed risk dropped further, with their risk levels reduced by 22%. Additionally, for 225 participants deemed at high-risk for recidivating who completed the program, their risk score dropped an impressive 19.5%.
