What is Recidivism?

Recidivism refers to an individual’s relapse into criminal behavior. Fundamentally, it is an individual’s belief that crime is the only way he or she can survive in the United States. In the United States, recidivism and mass incarceration are epidemics.

THE IMPACT OF RECIDIVISM

The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. Recidivism negatively impacts unemployment rates and economic freedom, forces excess taxpayer contributions to the criminal justice system and most importantly, compromises the safety and health of our communities. Georgia’s incarceration rate is 31% higher than the national average. Georgia leads the nation with over 200,000 probationers which is 321% higher than the national average. In stopping recidivism, we foster upward social mobility, optimize allocation of taxpayer dollars and enhance community experiences.
