Summary

Studies that measure recidivism are a nationally-accepted way to assess the effectiveness of in-prison and community corrections programs in preventing future criminal behavior. The Sentencing Commission produces an in-depth evaluation of the effectiveness of North Carolina correctional programs in increasing public safety by examining the relationship between offender risk factors, correctional programs and sanctions, and recidivism rates.
