Combines risk assessment and case management in one convenient evidence-based system.
The Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) is a fully functioning case management tool and an assessment that measures the risk and need factors of late adolescent and adult offenders. This single application provides all the essential tools needed to aid professionals in treatment planning for 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. Ten additional comprehensive sections have been incorporated to further assist public safety professionals in their analysis of offender management.

The normative sample for the LS/CMI consists of 157,947 North American youth and adult offenders—60,156 American adults and youth offenders from 10 jurisdictions, and 97,791 Canadian community and institutionalized adult and youth offenders.
