Of Note this Month...

  • Dr. William D. Bales, former Chief of the Bureau of Research and Data Analysis, has accepted a position at Florida State University as an Associate Professor in their School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. He leaves behind a legacy of innovation and integrity. His going-away cake read: "FSU's gain is our statistically significant loss." Best of luck, Bill!

  • In FY 2002-03, there were 75 escapes, none of them from inside a correctional institution. The majority (91.8%) of the escapes were from non-secure work release or contract centers. Of the 75 escapes, 67 or 89.3% were recaptured as of July 17, 2003.
