Results and Analysis

RPC Impact on Movement of Inmates to Reduced Management Levels

Another way to analyze the results of the RPC program is to examine its impact on the movement of inmates from their beginning CM status to their last status during the year. Tables 7 and 8 can be used to show the difference in the movement between the Pre-RPC Group and the RPC Group.

CM 3 82 9 10 21 0 32 10
* Open Population = Moved to open population in another facility
** TF = Transferred From FSP as CM 1, CM 2, or CM 3

- MAX MGT = Maximum Management: A temporary status for an inmate, who through a current incident or series of incidences, has been identified as being an extreme security risk to the department and requires an immediate level of control beyond that available in Close Management status or Death Row.
* Open Population = Moved to open population in another facility
** TF = Transferred From FSP as CM 1, CM 2, or CM 3

The salient points in examining the data in Tables 7 and 8 are, as follows:

  • The key variable in Table 7 and 8 is the 'Open Population' column as found in the Total row.
  • The RPC Group had 137 inmates whose last status was in Open Population at another facility, while the Pre-RPC Group had only 40 such inmates (a 243% increase).
