Annotation: This report provides information on the average daily population in each correctional complex, major institution, and satellite housing unit under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey Department of Corrections during fiscal year 1992 (July 1, 1991 to June 30, 1992). In addition, average daily population and end-of-month counts are reported for the community and residential juvenile programs.
Abstract: During fiscal year 1992 there was an average daily population of 24,358 offenders under the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections, 14,204 of whom were housed in State prison facilities; 4,764 were housed in youth correctional facilities, and 609 were housed in juvenile facilities. A total of 353 offenders were housed in contract halfway houses, 675 in community and residential programs, and 4,106 in county facilities. An additional 527 were in the electronic monitoring/home confinement program. From fiscal 1991 to fiscal 1992, the average daily population for the Department of Corrections increased 8 percent. The average daily population during fiscal 1992 was greater than the peak populations of 1988 through 1992. The State prison complex count increased 7 percent, the youth complex count increased 11 percent, the juvenile facilities population decreased 9 percent, and the community and residential juvenile programs decreased 4 percent. The continued increase in adult institutional population resulted from the ongoing impact of Title 2C and subsequent legislative enhancements to the Criminal Code. 7 tables
