After June 30, 2003, KRJ was only pre-arraignment and holding only locally arrested prisoners until arraignment. It didn't hold state prisoners (Village) at all, nor for court appointments, so numbers are significantly lower. The village arrests were held at a holding facility run by the Alaska State Troopers. Village arrestee's accounted for 50-60% of population before change of status. Some % stats too insignificant to calculate. # of Transports isn't recorded by KRJ but were almost daily.

* Population is # of inmates handled in one day, not necessarily how many stay overnight on any given day.

The Jail Population and Number of New Bookings (Doesn't include carry-overs from previous month) are affected by numerous factors, some being: Season, Weather, Annual Dividends, Holidays, Court scheduling, Types of charges, Number of Transportations to & from other facilities, and decisions by the State Legislature regarding mandatory jail times, or changes in the degree of any crime (Violation/Misdemeanor/Felony).

Recently added is Male/Female ratios and graphs. Data before 2001 unavailable.(3/08)

Range of & Average Population is over the whole month.

% of Operational Capacity is compared to the cap of 12.

# of Transports shows the number of times the Troopers moved prisoners between Anvil Mountain Correctional Center. This is dictated by capacity (12) and pending court dates of incarcerated Kotzebue prisoners at AMCC. Transports are usually twice each week or so. Data before 2001 less than reliable.

Man-Days shows how long individual prisoners were in the jail through the whole month. Under 4 hours is .5, over 4 hours is 1.
