Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI)

The LS/CMI is one of the Level of Service Inventory (LSI) instruments. It is an example of a fourth generation offender risk/need assessment scale and is distinguished from previous generation instruments by the fact that it was not only designed to predict offender recidivism but also includes a built-in case management component that translates the need portion of the assessment to an active intervention plan for offender supervision, treatment, and programming. Like the LSI-Revised (LSI-R), the LS/CMI was pilot-tested on a large scale for almost a decade prior to its general release. This entry describes the origins of the LS/CMI, places it historically in the sequence of LSI instruments, itemizes the differences between it and its predecessors, and summarizes the research that it has generated.
