Abstract
An SCDC releasee is considered a "recidivist" when they re-enter SCDC custody within 36 months of release. In FY 2017, there were 9,123 releasees (1,122 females and 8,001 males). Of those releasees, 1,843 (152 females and 1,691 males) recidivated to SCDC within 36 months due to conviction for a crime committed after release and/or supervision revocation for an overall rate of 20.2% (13.6% and 21.1%, respectively). SCDC’s recidivism rate has seen a slight yet steady decline in recent years.
