Description

This study report was completed in partnership with the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and examines the records of 660 criminal offenders in the State of Hawaii who were released to parole from either public/in-state prisons or private/mainland prisons during Fiscal Year 2006. The parolees were statistically tracked for three years. The study’s principal finding is that the difference in recidivism rates for the public/in-state cohort (56 percent) and the private/mainland cohort (53 percent) is statistically insignificant. The report also presents a statistical portrait of both cohorts (e.g., criminal history, risk assessments, demographics), and provides an overview of the history, policies, national context, and costs relating to the State of Hawaii’s use of private, out-of-state correctional facilities.
