The LS/RNR was developed for public safety organizations who want to use the most current research when conducting their level of service risk assessment but already have a case management process that they are comfortable with. It assesses the rehabilitation needs of offenders, their risk of recidivism, and the most relevant factors related to supervision and programming. The LS/RNR combines selected assessment sections from the LS/CMI™ and makes them available in one easy form. The LS/RNR assessment captures General Risk/Need Factors including Criminal History, Education/Employment, Family/Marital, Leisure/ Recreation, Companions, Alcohol/Drug Problems, Procriminal Attitude/Orientation, and Antisocial Pattern.

It also captures Specific Risk/Need Factors including Personal Problems with Criminogenic Potential and History of Perpetration, including sexual and non-sexual assault and other forms of violence and anti-social behaviour. Special Responsivity Considerations are also included.

How to Use the Assessment
The LS/RNR consists of six sections. In order to administer and score you will require a LS/RNR Interview Guide, a LS/RNR Quikscore Form, and the standard LS/CMI ColorPlot Profile Forms.
