Reducing Recidivism: States Deliver Results (2017)
This brief from the National Reentry Resource Center profiles seven states in which recidivism has significantly decreased over the last decade according to several different measures. Using the most up-to-date data from Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas, the brief highlights data on people under community supervision for a more comprehensive picture of recidivism. It also describes a sampling of recent policy changes that have taken place in each of these states and details some of the Second Chance Act grant awards received by various agencies and organizations in each state.
