Juvenile Risk Screening and Assessment Instrument Development

Status: complete

OJDDA developed and implemented a statewide set of instruments for use with juvenile offenders and youths at risk of juvenile justice involvement. The project included the development and implementation of a risk (to offend or re-offend) screen/assessment, a needs identification tool, supplementary resource materials, and trainings on use of the tools. The risk screen is required for use by programs funded by Oregon Juvenile Crime Prevention dollars and includes the five research-based risk factor domains that are specified in Oregon law. The tools are used primarily by juvenile departments and their subcontractors who provide JCP-funded programs, including schools, treatment providers, and other community agencies.
