Story Behind the Curve
For FY23 (July 2022-June 2023), there was a substantial increase in the number of individuals detained. While the average for FY22 was 345, FY23's average rose to 415.5, marking an average increase of 20.4% compared to FY22. The growth in the number of individuals detained may be impacted by a public perception of an increase in crime and some well publicized efforts by law enforcement and other stakeholders to address this. It may also represent a return to pre-pandemic patterns of policing and charging. Detained individuals constituted 31% of the total incarcerated population for FY23.
