Challenge Incarceration Program (CIP) Phase 1 - Incarceration 90 men at Willow River; 24 women at Togo Legislatively-created in 1992 (M.S ) for carefully selected, nondangerous drug & property offenders Rigorous physical exercise, drill, CD treatment, AA/NA, restorative justice projects, education, cognitive thinking skills Drill, education, work service

CIP Evaluation 2006 Looked at all CIP offenders since the program began in 1992 Examined three areas: -Has the demographic composition of the CIP population changed significantly in the last 5 years? If so, why? -Does CIP significantly reduce offender recidivism? -Does CIP reduce costs?
CIP Evaluation – Offender Profile A review of CIP offenders in the last 5 years found: Average age increased from 29 to 32 Greater Minnesota participants grew from 37% to 48% Meth offenders increased from 4% to 60% White offenders increased from 47% to 76% - primarily due to the meth boom (85% of meth offenders are white)
CIP Evaluation – Recidivism Does CIP significantly reduce offender recidivism? Compared recidivism rates of 1,347 CIP offenders from FY93-02 with a control group of 1,555 inmates released during same time period Average follow-up period was 7.2 years (second longest of any boot camp evaluation to date) Recidivism defined as: –Felony reconviction –Reimprisonment for a new crime –Any return to prison, for a new crime or a technical violation
Recidivism Study Results CIP decreased chances of reconviction for new felony by 32% CIP decreased chances of reimprisonment for new crime by 35% CIP offenders less likely than control group to be reimprisoned for a person offense When defining recidivism as any return to prison, CIP did not have a statistically significant impact CIP offenders are more likely to return to prison for technical violation (55% vs. 27% control group) Conversely, the control group was more likely to return for a new crime (73% vs. 45% CIP)
CIP Evaluation – Cost Savings Does CIP reduce costs? From FY93 to FY02, CIP has reduced costs by $18.1 million through saved bed days and recidivism reduction Reduced recidivism enhances public safety in the community, decreases victimization, and saves state and local criminal justice dollars CIP female squad drill at Togo
