Prisoner Reentry in Georgia

Research Report

Prisoner Reentry in Georgia

Abstract

This report describes prisoner reentry in Georgia by examining the state's incarceration, admission, and release trends over time; describing the characteristics of prisoners released from Georgia prisons; examining the geographic distribution of those released prisoners across the state; and describing the social and economic climates of communities that are home to the highest concentrations of returning prisoners. This report does not attempt to evaluate a specific reentry program, nor does it empirically assess Georgia's reentry policies and practices. Rather, the report consolidates existing data on incarceration and release trends and presents a new analysis of data on Georgia prisoners released in 2002.
