The latest available re-offending rates for prisons in North Yorkshire are provided in Table 1 as published by the Ministry of Justice in the Compendium of Reoffending Statistics and Analysis in November 2010.
Table 1 shows reoffending rates for North Yorkshire prisons (Wealstun and Leeds) in 2007 presented by prison category and prison sentence length (under 12 months and 12 months and over sentences).
The reoffending rates provided have been calculated based on the prison from which an offender was discharged and ignores the time spent at other institutions during that sentence.
The table also shows the average number of previous offences, average number of custodial sentences and the average age of the offenders discharged from North Yorkshire prisons in 2007. This illustrates that different prisons can have populations with a substantially different likelihood of reoffending.
|Table 1: Reoffending rates for North Yorkshire prisons 2007|
|Prison||Number of offenders discharged||Reoffending rate (%)||Average number of previous offences per offender||Average number of previous custodial sentences per offender||Average age per offender|
|Under 12 months sentence|
|Wealstun (Category C)||371||43.4||31.4||3.2||31.6|
|Leeds (Male local)||810||74.0||56.1||7.5||32.2|
|Over 12 month sentence|
|Wealstun (Category C)||388||16.2||25.4||2.9||34.9|
|Leeds (Male local)||173||50.9||46.1||5.8||33.1|
Young offender institution reoffending rates are not included for Northallerton and Wetherby, as the work published to date only considered adult prisons.
