Serious violent offenders: developing a risk assessment framework

Monica Barry, Nancy Loucks, Hazel Kemshall

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    In order to establish a complementary language of risk across all agencies, it is recommended that the Scottish Government and the Risk Management Authority actively disseminate MAPPA guidance through the RMA's specialist training programme and through the development of protocols and memoranda of agreement. Prior to a violent offender framework being implemented, an audit of existing numbers, staffing, budgetary and other resources should be undertaken across the Community Justice Authorities to ascertain projected needs.
