Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $500,000)
The applicant proposes to study the public safety impact of court-ordered reforms adopted to reduce state prison populations. In response to the passage of California Proposition 57 and a growing number of similar reform measures in other states, the researchers propose to examine how changes in parole eligibility affect the release of convicted felons back into the community, their commission of serious and other crimes, and returns to prison for arrests and other violations. In partnership with the California Alliance for Public Safety, the applicant proposes to develop a cross-agency data collection plan to link information on offender arrest, adjudication, prison, and reentry and will conduct an analysis to examine release, revocation, and recidivism outcomes over time.
