The State of Hawaii LSI-R Proxy is administered to all sentenced and a small number of pre-trial offenders. The purpose of the Proxy is to identify offenders who are at minimal recidivism risk. By ICIS policy, offenders who score four or less on the Proxy are classified at the Administrative risk level lowest level of risk). Offenders who score five or greater are at elevated risk, and consequently are administered an LSI-R, the primary risk assessment instrument used to identify criminogenic risks and needs.

This report is a three-year follow-up recidivism study that tracks rearrests for the FY2005 offender cohort. A total of 2,292 offender assessments were compiled from the State of Hawaii's Probation Services and the Hawaii Paroling Authority. This statewide study documents ICIS progress in reducing adult criminal offender recidivism by 30% over a ten-year period (1999-2008).

This report discusses the collaborative process of implementing the Static-99, Stable-2007 and Acute-2007. Also explained is the Supervision Case Planning Matrix, which integrates the LSI-R and Static/Stable risk and needs factors and is designed to assist community supervision officers in prioritizing their resources by determining appropriate case planning targets.

This validation study of the Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R) and the Adult Substance Use Survey (ASUS) determines the predictive accuracy of the LSI-R as a criminogenic risk instrument, and the ASUS as a risk assessment tool for offenders with substance use problems. The objective of this study is to validate the accuracy of the LSI-R and ASUS in specifying risk-classification levels for sentenced offenders in Hawaii. Pertinent criminogenic and substance use domains are evaluated for predictive validity, based on a two-year recidivism analysis.

This exploratory study is an analysis of the Domestic Violence Screening Instrument (DVSI) and the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment (SARA), and provides information needed to locally evaluate the validity of the DVSI and SARA as domestic violence risk instruments. The study report helps to strengthen criminal justice services in risk assessment and risk classification; intensive case management, planning, and supervision; and the matching of identified needs to effective treatment services.

This short article (from the ICIS Newsletter, Vol. 4, Issue 2) summarizes the predictive validity of the LSI-R for female offenders on probation, using recidivism analysis. The article reviews the adequacy of ICIS’ current LSI-R risk classification system for male and female probationers.

This report is a validation study of the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment (SARA), based on assessments compiled from 2004 through 2007. The report includes descriptive statistics of domestic violence and general recidivism occurrence for probationers classified at various risk levels.

This report is a validation study of the Domestic Violence Screening Instrument (DVSI). It is an analysis of compiled DVSI assessments from August, 2003 to July, 2007. The study includes descriptive statistics of domestic violence and general recidivism occurrence for probationers classified at various risk levels.

This report is based on a compilation of LSI-R and ASUS records specific to the Hawaii Paroling Authority, and examines the change in LSI-R and ASUS measurements between Fiscal Years 2005 and 2006. The report is divided into two sections. Part One features analyses for the following areas: (1) Offender Demographics; (2) LSI-R Initial Assessment Statistics; (3) ASUS Initial Assessment Statistics; and (4) Treatment Level. The selected statistical indicators include a baseline of offender profile data, and feature LSI-R Risk and Protective scores and ASUS subdomain percentiles. Part Two presents analyses for the following areas: (1) Demographics; (2) LSI-R Statistics; (3) ASUS Statistics; and (4) Treatment Level. These analyses represent an evaluation of the matched change in LSI-R and ASUS assessment scores between an offenders’initial assessment and most recent assessment.

These four reports (see above) supplement the statewide analyses presented in the larger, LSI-R & ASUS FY05-06 Parole Report by focusing on specific county-level analyses. For each county, the analyses examine the change in LSI-R and ASUS Initial Assessment statistics for Fiscal Years 2004 through 2006, and provide statistical summaries for the following areas: (1) Demographics; (2) LSI-R Statistics; (3) ASUS Statistics; and (4) Treatment Level.
