About the data

The Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation maintains the data found in this portal. Most client and resident information is collected when someone enters a correctional facility or begins probation. The data portal is updated every night.

Probation data

The data on the probation pages includes both pre- and post-adjudication clients. Pre-adjudication (before a conviction) clients include those who are out of jail on conditional release or a detention alternative, such as Electronic Home Monitoring. Post-adjudication (after a conviction) clients include those who have been sentenced to traditional probation, as well as those who have been sentenced to Sentencing to Service or the One-day DWI program.

Probation vs. parole

The data on the parole page includes clients who are on supervised release, or more commonly known as parole. In Minnesota, many individuals who are in a state prison are eligible for supervised release after they have served the mandatory two-thirds of their sentence. The remaining one-third of their sentence is served on supervised release. While on supervised release, clients are supervised by agents in our department, and they must adhere to guidelines set by the Minnesota Department of Corrections.

Correctional facility data

The data on the correctional facility pages includes all in house residents. Residents who have been sentenced to a detention alternative, such as Electronic Home Monitoring, are not counted in this data. Individuals who are in the Hennepin County jail — or adult detention facility — are not counted in this data; that facility is operated by the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office.

Data FAQ

Who is a client?

A client is someone who is on adult probation, adult parole or juvenile probation in Hennepin County.

Who is a resident?

A resident is someone who is at the Adult Corrections Facility, County Home School or Juvenile Detention Center.

Within the 'highest sentenced charge' category, who is included in the 'blank' filter?

All pre-adjudication probation clients are represented by a blank value in the 'highest sentenced charge' category because they have not been convicted of committing a crime. These clients are out of jail on conditional release or a detention alternative.

What is an 'in house' resident at a correctional facility?

A resident is considered 'in house' when they stay overnight at the Adult Corrections Facility. These residents may spend their full sentence at the facility, or they may have permission to leave during the day for work or school and return in the evening. All residents at the County Home School and Juvenile Detention Center are considered in house. Individuals who have been sentenced to a detention alternative, such as Electronic Home Monitoring, are not considered in house residents and therefore are not counted in this data.

What is the difference between 'maximum physical capacity' and 'functional capacity'?

'Maximum physical capacity' is the total number of residents a correctional facility can house; 'functional capacity' is the maximum number of residents a correctional facility would like to house for safety and security reasons. Functional capacity is typically 85% of a facility's physical capacity.

Why is 'median daily population' used instead of average daily population?

The number of residents in a correctional facility can change significantly day-to-day over a given period of time. The median is a statistic that is not impacted by these large changes and is preferred over the average when data may be skewed.
