On the morning of 15th November CEP organizes a webinar on Assessment in the field of Probation, an important topic for both CEP members and the European Commission DG Justice and Consumers.

With overwhelming caseloads, probation officers may need risk assessment tools as they provide an important data point in the effort to identify the risk factors for criminal recidivism, protective factors and needs and assign an appropriate level of supervision. Nowadays, there are a plethora of assessment tools, reflecting the diversity of offending and service users. There are general assessment tools and specialist ones (such as those for sexual offenders, domestic violence perpetrators, extremists, or for the various forms of mental illness and learning disability).

This webinar will bring a focus from different angles, and perspectives. CEP is inviting two experts from Europe, Belgium and The Netherlands, and will also have a Special Guest from New Zealand sharing their experience about the Department of Corrections’ journey with risk assessment in New Zealand and the lessons they have learnt along the way.
