Group: Alaska Judicial Council

URL: http://www.ajc.state.ak.us/reports/recid2011.pdf

Description

Alaska’s Criminal Justice Working Group asked the Judicial Council and ISER to study the recidivism of nearly 23,000 offenders who returned to Alaskan communities in 2008 and 2009. This is the first study in Alaska to analyze the recidivism of offenders charged with misdemeanors, affording comparisons that were not possible before. The report will be used as a baseline for assessing trends in the criminal justice system, and against which the effectiveness of new programs to protect the public can be measured. The report discusses the factors associated with recidivism depending on the type of offense, the offender's’ demographic characteristics, and location in the state. It also looks at the type and seriousness of new offenses.
