Abstract

The Iowa Department of Corrections (IDOC) is responsible for nine institutions housing approximately 8,200 individuals, and the accreditation and funding of eight district departments of correctional services that supervise about 30,800 people on any given day. Before strategic planning began, and before key elements of the plan were put in place, Iowa’s prison recidivism rate ranged between 34% and 36%. Through our efforts the prison recidivism rate stabilized at around 30% to 32% for the past six years prior to the FY2016 reporting year. Our overall desired outcome for long-term public safety is to reduce the recidivism rate for parolees and higher risk probationers to 25% over the next five years. We intend to reach this goal through the work of the Statewide Recidivism Reduction Strategy, which is incorporated into this updated strategic plan.
