Results and Analysis

RPC Objective # 3 - Decrease the number of recommitments to CM status following completion of the RPC program at FSP, as compared to a like control group.

Recommitted to CM
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 Number = 5 (of 41 released)
Percent = 12.2%
Number = 3 (of 75 released)
Percent = 4.0%
(B) Began in
CM 1 or CM 2
Number = 41 (of 45 released)
Percent = 91.1%
Number = 42 (of 107 released)
Percent = 39.3%
(C) Began in
CM 1, CM 2, or CM 3
(All CM Inmates)
Number = 46 (of 86 released)
Percent = 53.5%
Number = 45 (of 182 released)
Percent = 24.7%

The key point in examining the results of the RPC based on Program Objective # 3 is, as follows:

  • The results of PO # 3 are best reflected in the 'Percent Recommitted to CM' (since the actual number recommitted for each group is practically the same for a given category). The success of the RPC in meeting PO # 3 can be seen in looking at Category C and seeing that the RPC Group's 'Percent Recommitted to CM' was less than half of the Pre-RPC Group's (24.7% versus 53.5%). Although the RPC program met its PO # 3 for inmates that began in CM 3 (Category A), the main effect can be seen in Category B inmates (those that began in CM 1 or CM 2). The percent recommitted in this category for the RPC Group was only 39.3% compared to 91.1% for the Pre-RPC Group.

CONCLUSION - The RPC Program Objective # 3 to decrease the number of recommitments to CM status was met to a very high degree.
