1 online resource (42 pages)


Issued also in French under title : Profil des délinquantes à sécurité minimale.
"October 2018."


The primary purpose of the study was to describe women who have been placed in minimum security and contrast them with women who have not been placed in minimum security. The descriptions and comparisons focus on four areas of the correctional process: intake information, institutional adjustment, intervention involvement, and release-related information for three groups of women released between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2016: (1) women who were initially placed at minimum security and stayed there until release (n = 296; 15% Indigenous); (2) women who had never cascaded to minimum security prior to release (n = 249; 46% Indigenous); and (3) women who had cascaded to minimum security prior to release (n = 132; 35% Indigenous).
