Incarcerated Juveniles and Recidivism in Hawaii
Group: Crime Prevention and Justice Assistance Division, Chaminade University of Honolulu
In this report, the records of 805 youth released from the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility (HYCF) during Calendar Years 1995-1999 are analyzed in order to provide a demographic profile of youth released from the facility. Records of a subset of these youth, 370 cases released during Fiscal Years 1996-1998, were obtained from the HYCF, county police departments and prosecutor’s offices, and the Department of the Attorney General. Records covering a two-year period following each youth’s last release within the study period are analyzed to calculate recidivism rates based on three measures: re-arrests, re-convictions, and re-confinements at either HYCF or a secure adult facility. These data are then explored in conjunction with the demographic data in order to provide further insight into the issue of recidivism.
