Community Supervision Releases

Summary of Community Supervision Releases

The number of offenders released from community supervision in FY2012-13 decreased by 1.9% from the previous year, from 90,626 in FY 2011-12 to 88,940 in FY 2012-13.

Only 6.6% of those released from supervision had been in prison prior to their supervision.

Almost 40,000 (45.0%) of them completed their sentences successfully, while 22.0% were revoked for a technical violation, and another 15.4% were revoked because they committed a new offense.

The remaining releases were due to court action, pardon, death or other state cases returned.

Most releases are male (73.8%), white (64.1%), ages 25-34 (33.6%) and had never been on community supervision before (54.0%).
