Process for Assessment and/or inclusion in scheme/intervention

Assessed for suitability by the Criminal Justice Social Worker when completing the Criminal Justice Social Work Report for the court.
An initial analysis of the individual’s offending – which considers the pattern, nature, seriousness, and likelihood of offending – will have been carried out at the Criminal Justice Social Work Report stage.
A fuller risk/needs assessment and analysis of the individual’s offending will be required in every case where an offender supervision requirement has been imposed, whether the requirement was informed by a Criminal Justice Social Work Report or not.
This fuller assessment, informed by an agreed method or tool such as LS/CMI (Level of Service Case Management Inventory) should be completed within 4 weeks of the requirement being imposed. This assessment should be used to determine the main elements of the case management plan, including the level of supervision necessary to support rehabilitation. Supervision levels should be considered as:

  • Low intensity
  • Very high intensity
  • High intensity
  • Medium intensity
