Due to the complex nature of your request, I have attached an Extension of Time to Fill Request form.

Thank you,

From: Department of Correction

Good afternoon Sarika. I have attached statistical information we have recently compiled. The most recent recidivism numbers are as of March this year. The final cohort is 2016, but this group (and all the groups) are followed through December 31, 2017.

The most recent presentation has where admissions and releases were discussed is attached. We also have several standard reports available online at: https://www.idoc.idaho.gov/content/about_us/research_statistics

We don't have any reports we have created on inmate housing status prior to and after commitment to IDOC.

Thank you for your patience with this records request.
