The LS/CMI represents the fourth generation of risk assessment and the most comprehensive and current product of its kind. The Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) is the next step from the LSI-R inventory. It combines risk assessment and case management into one evidence-based system. All the necessary tools are here in one single application.

The LS/CMI helps probation officers, psychologists, and correctional workers to assess offenders’ rehabilitation needs. The interview guide allows you to survey the offender’s attributes and life situation, enabling you to assess his or her risk of recidivism and produce a quantitative assessment of the factors most relevant to the level of service, supervision, and programming required.

A case management plan provides a summary of the criminogenic and noncriminogenic needs, as well as special responsivity considerations to be targeted during supervision. A progress record provides a running log of activities designed to measure changes in the client’s situation resulting from case management strategies. A discharge summary sums up the offender’s status at discharge and any recommendations for the future.

The LS/CMI was normed on 157,947 North American youth and adult offenders-60,156 U.S. adult and youth offenders from 10 jurisdictions, and 97,791 Canadian community and institutionalized adult and youth offenders.

Profile Reports provide security classification information based on the overall assessment score.

Comparative Reports compare results of two to four assessments. They are useful in determining risk/need changes over time.

Case Management Reports provide an administrative summary of the criminogenic and noncriminogenic needs of the offender. These reports also list special responsivity considerations and a discharge summary where applicable
