Analysis of Offense Categories, June 2012
Group: Massachusetts Department of Correction
The Massachusetts Department of Correction (MA DOC) offers programming with objectives and goals focused towards reducing recidivism for each of the five offender populations, Person, Sex, Property, Drug, and ‘Other’, which represent MA DOC’s criminally sentenced population. In order for the Department to continue improving programming capabilities and performance, descriptive statistics are necessary to identify the types of offenders committed to the MA DOC’s criminally sentenced population. Fluctuations over time to an offender population can lead to the need for operational and programming alterations. This brief examines offense categories and details the offenses committed for both the January 1, 2011 and 2010 New Court Commitment criminally sentenced jurisdiction populations. A summary of ten year trends is also included for each population.
