Footers throughout the Legislative Report

  1. The Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board provided for a recidivism study during the fiscal year covered by this report. The analysis of the data collected continues, and a recidivism report is expected in the upcoming year. This recommendation stresses the need to continue collecting and analyzing recidivism data throughout the life of the initiative, as an integral part of a comprehensive policy analysis strategy.
  2. These counties constitute the "Phase II" Redeploy Illinois initiative (see below, page ##, for further discussion of this Phase).
  3. The map attached at the end of this report identifies the current Redeploy Illinois program sites.
  4. YASITM assesses static and dynamic risk and protective factors in high risk youth. The measurement of protective factors helps caseworkers build on the strengths of youth to buffer the negative impact of risk (Orbis, 2009).
  5. "Technical" parole violators refers to youth who have recommitted to IDJJ for lack of compliance with specific terms and conditions of their parole agreements; their re-incarceration is not the result of a conviction for a new offense.
  6. "Impact Incarceration" refers to youth commitments to IDJJ for the purpose of educating youthful offenders about the negative experience of incarceration in the hopes that the impact incarceration will deter the youth from future delinquent behavior.
  7. These average costs do not reflect a broad range of incarceration costs that depend on various factors. For example, a maximum security facility costs more to operate, per capita, than a medium security facility, and youth with significant medical and mental health needs cost more to incarcerate than youth with fewer health problems. These average figures allow for general comparisons, but do not constitute definitive cost-benefit calculations.
  8. It is likely that the other Redeploy Illinois sites experienced the same difficulties; they were not included in the implementation study sample, however.
  9. The Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board provided for a recidivism study during the fiscal year covered by this report. The analysis of the data collected continues, and a recidivism report is expected in the upcoming year. This recommendation stresses the need to continue collecting and analyzing recidivism data throughout the life of the initiative, as an integral part of a comprehensive policy analysis strategy.
