Abstract: During 2005, the Criminal Justice Data Analysis Team (CJDA) of the Legislative Budget Board (LBB) began the Community Supervision Revocation Project to evaluate the impact of $55.5 million in additional community supervision funds appropriated by the Seventy-ninth Legislature, 2005. These funds provided additional residential treatment and sanction beds and caseload reductions in selected Community Supervision and Corrections Departments (CSCDs). This final report addresses the potential impact of the additional funds provided and describes the shifts in local policies and practices while capturing information on all felons revoked during September 2007 from the selected CSCDs and comparing the findings with the 2005 cohort. All of the diversion initiatives funded in 2005 were fully implemented, allowing for quantitative comparison of the 2005 and 2007 samples of revoked felons. Policy considerations are included along with a glossary and appendixes, which provide additional detail regarding all of the data obtained from the CSCDs. Although this report concludes the Community Supervision Revocation Project, the data collected will continue to provide samples for future community supervision research. Tables and figures
