The analysis revealed that males who spent more days in the program and who were arrested less often had the best chances of successfully completing the program.

Only ‘Program Status’ and ‘Days in the Program’ predicted the odds of being arrested post-program. Those who completed and/or spend more days in the program are arrested less often after leaving the program.

Being arrested while in the program stood out as a common occurrence and as a significant predictor of program failure. More than half of all participants were arrested and spent some time in jail while in the program. Although all program participants had similar criminal backgrounds, those who were terminated had an average of five times more in-program arrests than those who graduated. Each in-program arrest significantly decreased the odds of program completion.

Five times as many terminated DCP participants, and twice as many terminated MHCP participants were arrested post-program, compared to their graduated counterparts.
