New National Statistics on Corrections Populations

The Bureau of Justice Statistics has just released two bulletins that examine the numbers of prisoners and individuals under probation or parole supervision in the nation for 2008 and report on related trends—including an overall increase in the number of individuals being released from federal and state prisons.

The bulletins were posted on the National Reentry Resource Center website, which is a new place to find information about reentry.
