Description

The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Central Connecticut State University was contracted by the Connecticut Department of Correction to revalidate the Connecticut Board of Parole’s Salient Factor Score. These risk scores were created specifically for Connecticut in the 1990s to provide parole board members with additional information to consider when deciding whether an inmate should be granted parole. The purpose of this project was to (1) collect more recent data on parole eligible inmates; (2) assess the usefulness of the existing risk factors; and, (3) provide recommendations to the Connecticut Board of Pardons and Paroles to improve the process of calculating risk scores and increase their validity for measuring parolees’ risk of not successfully completing parole.
