Fewer inmates returning to prison after release.
The report includes analyses of demographics, including gender, length of stay, offense, age, risk category, mental health status and behavior while under CDCR supervision. "A major goal for CDCR and for other public safety officials is to prevent offenders from victimizing again after their release from incarceration," said CDCR Secretary Matthew Cate. "Even a slight drop in the overall percentage can equate to thousands of inmates who have not returned to prison and likely prevented victimization of countless citizens. Reducing recidivism has been a primary goal for our agency, and this report shows that progress is being made."
