AbstractThe Legislative Interim Committee on Corrections, Alaska State Legislature, requested identification and assessment of the differing segments of institutional populations and their relationships to present space utilization practices of the Alaska Division of Corrections (later Department of Corrections). The basic questions for which solutions were sought related to development of reasonable options for relief of overcrowding in some institutions, to ensure more effective use of bed space in others, and to provide interim short-term solutions to system-wide overcrowding through modifications to existing facilities and through policy changes. The Committee emphasized that long-term facility planning should be properly left to the correctional master plan to be completed by early 1979. This report surveys correctional populations and space utilization practices within the eleven principal correctional centers managed by the Alaska Division of Corrections as of 1977–1978.

Alaska Corrections Master Plan: A Preliminary Draft SummaryEndell, Roger V. (Criminal Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1979-07-11)In 1978, the State of Alaska committed itself to the development of a comprehensive master plan for its correctional system based on a philosophy consistent with the mandate of the Alaska Constitution (Article 1, Section 12): "Penal administration shall be based unon the principle of reformation and upon the need for protecting the public." This summary of the Alaska Corrections Master Plan was prepared to facilitate an overview of the various sections of the plan prior to the final meeting of the joint Master Plan Advisory Committee. As the plan itself was not yet in final approved form, this summary reflects the plan as it existed prior to finalization.
Alaska Department of Corrections: Admissions and Population, 2004–2013Parker, Khristy (Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center, Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2015-06-01)This fact sheet presents data on admissions to, and confined populations in, the Alaska Department of Corrections (DOC) from 2004 to 2013, focusing on incarcerated populations and rates, in both in-state and out-of-state facilities, as well as populations and rates in special supervision programs such as Community Residential Centers (CRCs) and electronic monitoring (EM).
