Description

The Massachusetts Department of Correction (MA DOC) offers programming with objectives and goals focused towards reducing recidivism for all criminally sentenced offenders. This report characterizes offenders by the type of governing offense: Person, Sex, Property, Drug, and ‘Other’. Over time, fluctuations in an offender population can lead to the need for enhanced operational and programming options. 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. This brief examines offense categories and details the offenses committed for both the January 1, 2012 and 2011 New Court Commitment criminally sentenced jurisdiction populations. A summary of ten year trends is also included for each population.
