Beginning March 2020, in response to COVID-19 mitigation, the VT court system decreased court proceedings and housing detainees awaiting trials in VT correctional facilities. Beginning in FY22, court proceedings increased, resulting in an increase in detainees, which explains the increase in intakes beginning July 2021. In FY22 (July 2021-June 2022), there were an average of 216 new patient intakes across all in-state correctional facilities. This average represents 19% of the average total incarcerated population in FY21.
