Juvenile Recidivism 2021


The Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) defines recidivism as a return to incarceration within three years of the offender’s date of release from a state correctional institution.

This study looks at Juvenile offenders released in 2018 and follows the offender for three years from their release date to determine if the offender returned to incarceration in either a Juvenile or Adult Facility.
