The Office of Research is responsible for producing a variety of reports, including projections of the adult, parole, and juvenile populations; statistical summaries of CDCR’s populations and recidivism reporting. The Office of Research also facilitates external research requests and provides research-based information and data to CDCR administrators and correctional stakeholders.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is shuttering the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) process. Effective August 1, 2018, CDCR will no longer accept RAC applications. RAC application extensions will be addressed on a case-by-case basis and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new external research process should deploy in early 2019.
