Recidivism Interim Study Committee. The bill requires the
division of criminal justice in the department of public safety to convene
a working group to develop a definition of recidivism to be used by
each state entity that collects data or reports on recidivism, in any report
issued by the entity. The working group consists of representatives of the
judicial department, the department of corrections, the division of youth
services in the department of human services, the state board of parole,
the department of public safety, an institution of higher education, and a
community-based organization that works for criminal legal reform and
supports consistent data collection.
The working group shall develop a definition of recidivism no
later than January 15, 2025. The definition must include:
  • A clearly defined measurement point to begin tracking
  • A clear description of the cohort to be tracked;
  • That the recidivism event is a new deferred agreement or
adjudication or conviction for a felony or misdemeanor
offense, including Victim Rights Act crimes; and
  • A clearly defined time period during which an event is
considered a recidivism event, consistent with best
practices for measuring recidivism.
Each state entity that collects data or reports on recidivism in any
report issued by the entity shall begin using the working group's definition
on July 1, 2025.
