Recidivism is an important measure of the impact that supervision and programming have on changing criminal behavior and improving public safety.

As measured here, recidivism is defined as the percentage of adult felony-level offenders who were under either county or state supervision who are convicted of another felony within three years following discharge from supervision. The recidivism rate, currently at 19 percent, has remained relatively stable over the past eight years.
