This is a statistical report on the Domestic Violence Screening Instrument (DVSI) and Spousal Assault Risk Assessment (SARA) in FYs 2008 and 2009. Probation Officers use the DVSI for criminal history, risk classification, and risk analysis purposes. The SARA provides useful information on offenders who score above the administrative level of supervision. Both instruments are essential for identifying criminogenic risk patterns, specifically for offenders convicted on domestic violence and assessed at the medium and high risk levels.
