A quantitative examination of factors available in the offender management system associated with successful release / Kaitlyn Wardrop, Chelsea Sheahan & Lynn A. Stewart.: PS83-3/429E-PDF
"The identification of factors related to successful release is currently an important focus of correctional research. Although attention to criminal risk factors remains vital in the promotion of safe reintegration of offenders, the inclusion of a consideration of offender strengths provides a more comprehensive approach to case management, correctional planning and intervention. Further, the identification and consideration of these factors promotes hope for individuals coping with significant disadvantages as they move towards desistance from crime. The current study aimed to identify factors related to success on release that were available from the existing Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) administrative data. For the purpose of this study, success was defined as having had no suspensions or revocations for at least six months post-release. All federal offenders admitted and released between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2017 who experienced at least six months of follow-up time in the community, and who were rated as medium or high risk and need at the time of release were included in this study. The final cohort included 17,213 men (24% Indigenous) and 932 women (39% Indigenous). When possible, analyses were disaggregated by Indigenous status"--Executive summary, page iii.
