The Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) is an assessment that measures the risk and need factors of late adolescent and adult offenders. The LS/CMI is also a fully functioning case management tool. This single application provides all the essential tools needed to aid professionals in the treatment planning and management of offenders in justice, forensic, correctional, prevention and related agencies.

Developed to reflect the increasing knowledge base on offender risk assessment since the Level of Service Inventory–Revised (LSI-R™), LS/CMI has refined and combined the 54 LSI-R items into 43 items in Section 1. In addition 10 comprehensive sections have been incorporated to further assist public safety professionals in their analysis of offender management.

How to Use the Assessment
The LS/CMI consists of 11 sections. The Level of Service Assessment (Section 1) can be used on its own with Level of Service Risk Assessment only Interview Guides and QuikScore Forms. If you wish to use the full LS/CMI administration materials include the LS/CMI Interview Guide, an Offender History Form, a QuikScore Form for recording responses, a Case Management Program, and a ColorPlot Profile Form. With the software format, all of these components are included in the program and you can instantly generate Profile Reports, Comparative Reports, and Case Management Reports
