Description

AB 109 Evaluation A Process and Outcome Evaluation AB 109 Evaluation Proposal; A Process and Outcome Evaluation We are proposing a comprehensive and methodologically rigorous process and outcome evaluation that focuses on the implementation and impact of AB109/117 in Los Angeles County. We will evaluate AB109/117 using a mixed-methods research design that incorporates quantitative data on a variety of process and outcome measures and qualitative data from interviews with relevant stakeholders and with those charged with implementing the legislation. The process evaluation will assess whether AB109/117 is being implemented as intended and with fidelity; the focus will be on the policies and procedures specified in the implementation plan for post-release community supervision, revocation of parole (after July 1, 2013), and jail management. The outcome evaluation will examine community supervision program completion rates, the recidivism rates of offenders supervised under the new post-release community supervision program compared to a matched sample of offenders supervised by the state prior to October 1, 2011, and longitudinal data on crime rates. We also are proposing a Phase II outcome evaluation that will assess the effects of the legislation on the county correctional and court systems.
