19. Recidivism rate of rehabilitated offenders[1]

Recidivism rate



Recidivism rate is defined as the percentage of re-admissions of local rehabilitated offenders to the correctional institutions following conviction of new offences within two years after discharge. The local rehabilitated offenders refer to those persons who hold HK Identity Card (but excluding imported labour, foreign domestic helpers and consulate staff) and are released after serving their sentence.
