The progress report laid out ICJIA’s full plan to fulfill the Act, highlighted ICJIA’s completed work to date, and detailed the agency’s need for additional engagement with public housing authorities to address logistical and methodological questions for accurate data collection, measurement, and interpretation. Per ICJIA’s established timeline, the months of January, February, and March 2023 were to gather information from public housing stakeholders for logistics and survey refinement, as well as pilot a data collection tool with selected authorities to ensure readability, usability, and clarity.

- ItemDifferences in recidivism outcomes of Illinois prison work release centers by participant characteristics(Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, 2023-08-05) Reichert, Jessica; Maranville, Ryan; Ott Hill, EvaPersons reentering the community after prison face many obstacles that have been shown to reduce recidivism, such as securing employment. Like many states, Illinois operates work release centers allowing prisoners nearing the end of their sentence to work in the community and stay in the correctional facility when not working. Although the research is limited, these programs have been shown to be successful at increasing post-release employment, increasing hours worked, and reducing recidivism. We described characteristics of 1,580 participants in Illinois’ four Adult Transition Centers (ATCs) and examined differences in characteristics associated with re-arrest and reincarceration. We found age, gender, and ATC facility were associated with re-arrest and reincarceration. We found, as well, that recidivism risk, offense type, prior arrests, prior incarcerations, and length of stay were associated with re-arrest. We recommend consistently measuring risk and tailoring services to the needs of the participant population. [Author Abstract]
- ItemEmployment of individuals after release from Illinois prisons: Employee characteristics, occupations, and wages(Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, 2023-09-01) Reichert, Jessica; Maranville, Ryan; Ott Hill, EvaEmployment is an important factor in successful community reintegration after prison release and is associated with lower rates of recidivism. To examine employment following release from Illinois prisons, we matched state prison records to state employment data. Our sample was made up of 4,430 persons who exited prison in 2018 and we tracked their employment through 2021. We found after release from prison, those in our sample had an unemployment rate of 46%. The average income was lower than the federal poverty level and hourly wages were lower than the state minimum wage. We found a higher proportion of Black persons than persons of other races were unemployed and had lower wages after release. Women in our sample were slightly more likely to be employed, but earned less, than men. We found participants in IDOC Kewanee Life Skills Re-Entry Center and Illinois work release centers were more likely to have longer employment and higher wages post-release. Therefore, the state, as well as local communities, should invest in vocational and educational programming, as well as reentry support, for those leaving prison to improve employment outcomes.
