Results and Analysis

RPC Objective # 4 - Reduce the number and severity of disciplinary reports of CM inmates while in the RPC program, as compared to a like control group.

RPC Group
(From 9/1/2000
Through 8/31/2001)
(A) Began in CM 3 Total Number = 133
Number Per 1,000 Days = 3.5
Total Number = 144
Number Per 1,000 Days = 2.8
(B) Began in
CM 1 or CM 2
Total Number = 2,387
Number Per 1,000 Days = 12.8
Total Number = 1,460
Number Per 1,000 Days = 10.0
(C) Began in
CM 1, CM 2, or CM 3
(All CM Inmates)
Total Number = 2,520
Number Per 1,000 Days = 11.2
Total Number = 1,604
Number Per 1,000 Days = 8.1

The salient points in examining the results of the RPC based on Program Objective # 4 are, as follows:

  • Again, examining Category C indicates the success the RPC program had in meeting PO # 4. The RPC Group had a much lower total number of DR's (1,604) as well as a lower number of DR's per 1,000 days in CM (8.1) than did inmates in the Pre-RPC Group (which had 2,520 and 11.2 respectively).
  • Again, a large effect related to PO # 4 could also be found in Category B inmates (in CM 1 or CM 2). The RPC Group had a much lower total number of DR's (1,460) as well as a lower number of DR's per 1,000 days in CM (10.0) than did inmates in the Pre-RPC Group (which had 2,387 and 12.8 respectively).
  • For Category A, the RPC Group inmates did better than the Pre-RPC Group (2.8 DR's per 1,000 days in CM compared to 3.5 for the Pre-RPC Group). For Category A, the RPC Group actually had more total DR's compared to the Pre-RPC Group (144 compared to 133). The higher number of DR's for the RPC Group's inmates in CM 3 status was due to more freedom and more scrutiny given as a result of participation in RPC.

CONCLUSION - The RPC Program Objective # 4 to reduce the number and severity of disciplinary reports of CM 3 inmates while in the RPC program was met to a high degree.
