For purposes of this report attempted escape and escape are defined as follows:
An escape is further defined as one of the following levels:
An escape rate is defined as the number of escapes/(total population on the last day of the month for each month in the quarter/3)* 1,000.
A perimeter escape is defined as one initiated from inside the perimeter of a correctional facility other than a community release facility.
There were 14 escapes for the third quarter (January 2015 - March 2015) of Fiscal Year 2014-15.
