Individuals who are under community supervision can return to incarceration for a technical violation, for committing a new crime, or a combination of the two. Anyone who was returned to incarceration for a technical violation as well as for committing a new crime was categorized as returning for committing a new crime, resulting in two categories as a reason for return: technical violation or new crime.
Returns due to technical violations remained fairly consistent with an average of 19 returns a month. Returns due to technical violations constituted 44.6% of all returns to incarceration from community supervision in FY22.
For information containing total returns to incarceration from field supervision and comparisons of returns by technical violation and new crime(s), see Community Supervision Returns: Total.
