Results and Analysis

RPC Objective # 1 - Increase the number of CM inmates who are released to open population, as compared to a like control group

Table 1 - Results Related to RPC Program Objective # 1
VARIABLE -
Number Released to
Open Population
Pre-RPC Group
(From 9/1/1999
Through 8/31/2000)
RPC Group
(From 9/1/2000
Through 8/31/2001)
(A) Began in CM 3 41 (of 197) 75 (of 208)
(B) Began in
CM 1 or CM 2
45 (of 536) 107 (of 594)
(C) Began in
CM 1, CM 2, or CM 3
(All CM Inmates)
86 (of 733) 182 (of 802)

Salient points, in examining the results of the RPC based on Program Objective # 1 are, as follows:

  • Across all CM inmates (Category C), the total number released to open population was more than twice as many (182 versus 86) for the RPC Group compared to the Pre-RPC Group.
  • Of special note, the results for PO # 1 of the RPC program were quite pronounced (75 released compared to 41) for those who began in CM 3 (Category A). The results were even more impressive for those that began in CM 1 or CM 2 (Category B) with 107 in the RPC Group being released to open population compared to only 45 in the Pre-RPC Group (almost 2.4 times as many).

CONCLUSION - The RPC Program Objective # 1 to increase the number of CM inmates released to open population was met to a very high degree.
