Annual Connecticut Recidivism Study

Recidivism is a relapse into criminal behavior. Measures of recidivism may include: 1) new arrests; 2) new convictions; 3) any incidence of re-incarceration; and 4) returns to prison with a new sentence. The State of Connecticut Recidivism Study is an annual report published in response to the statutory requirements outlined in Public Act 05-249. This legislation created the Criminal Justice Policy and Planning Division (CJPPD) within the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) and tasked the Division with issuing an annual report on the recidivism of offenders released from the custody of the Department of Correction (DOC) and from probation.
