Description

In response to the Department of Correction’s mission change to increase the number of inmates being released from pre-release facilities, research was done to look at releases from Boston Pre-Release Correctional Center, the pre-release facility which releases the majority of males back into the community and South Middlesex Correctional Center, the only female pre-release facility in the Massachusetts Department of Correction (MADOC). The objective of this brief is to examine Boston Pre-Release Correctional Center and South Middlesex Correctional Center to gauge how long an inmate remains in a pre-release facility prior to release, how long it takes to obtain employment, and to calculate and describe one year recidivism rates for inmates released to the street from a pre-release by employment status.
