Risks, Needs and Re-offending: Evaluating the Impact of Community Sentences in Jersey


This report summarizes the main results of an analysis of data collected by the Jersey
Probation and After-Care Service since the introduction of the Level of Service
Inventory (Revised) (LSI-R, Andrews and Bonta 1995) as a new method of risk and
need assessment to support the preparation of social inquiry reports and the evaluation
of progress during supervision. The data available for this report concern 1073
offenders assessed in Jersey using LSI-R between Autumn 1996 (when LSI-R was
introduced) and the end of June 1999 (the latest qualifying point for inclusion in the
reconviction study with adequate follow-up). We are also grateful to the States Police
for assistance with information about reconvictions, and to the Governor and staff of
H. M. Prison, La Moye for information about release dates of imprisoned offenders.
