Early Release Stats

Post by Dr Doubles » Wed May 04, 2011 10:06 pm

Of those prisoners released early…

16,334 of these offenders were serving sentences for violence against the person.
1,234 offenders were reported for alleged re-offending while on early release.
1,624 alleged offences were committed by offenders on early release.
125 offenders recalled for alleged re-offending or breaching the terms of their early release are still at large.

That means 1634 crimes were committed (at least) that wouldn’t have been committed had those criminals still been in prison.

That’s because prison works and everybody knows it.

We already know that. We also know that the only way to reduce the prison population is by not jailing those who should be, or by not jailing them for long enough.

I've just seen my first ex-prisoner on the street this eve, having a beverage with the local wino's. Wonder how long it'll be before I see him on my wing again.........?! :slwh:
