8) Automating Risk Assessment Instruments and Reliability
In 2014, there were 6,851,000 adults under correctional supervision in the United States. Within 5 years of being released from prison, 77% of an estimated 400,000 state prisoners eventually reoffended. The utilization of risk assessment instruments is increasingly common in various criminal justice contexts as practitioners use these instruments to predict recidivism, identify addressable criminogenic needs, and direct resources to those offenders at greatest risk of reoffending. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1745-9133.12272/abstract
