Abstract: There were 8,929 offenders confined and 5,447 not confined, for a grand total of 14,376 offenders. This was an increase of 527 from the previous year. The average daily population was 8,563, an increase of 81 from 2001. The total capacity, including placements in non-KDOC facilities, was 8,936 as of June 30, 2002. Of the total capacity, 554 beds were designated for female occupancy. The capacity for placement of inmates at non-DOC facilities was 130. This includes beds at Larned State Hospital, at contract jail facilities, and the beds at Labette Correctional Conservation Camp. Admissions have increased from the previous year in all years except 1996 and 2001. The yearly number of releases has fluctuated more than admissions. The pattern of releases basically follows the variation in the number released to post-incarceration supervision, since this category accounts for the large majority of releases. The total number of admissions was up 3 percent from 2001. The total number of releases was down 6.2 percent from 2001. The two types of admission for violations while on post-incarceration supervision, new sentence, and condition violation (no new sentence) together comprised 43 percent of total admissions in 2002. The rate of parole was 40.3 percent, up from 37.4 percent in 2001. The yearly rates of parole experienced in the past decade were lower than the estimated 80 percent parole rate for the early 1980's. The majority of the inmates upon admission to the correctional system were male, White, 35 years of age, had a high school education, and no formal vocational training. The type of admission was a new court commitment, including probation violators. The type of offense was a personal crime. The duration of confinement was 24 months or less. 27 figures, 19 tables
