An Analysis of Youth Level of Service Inventory (YLSI) “Risks and Needs” Data for Juvenile Offenders Assessed by Hawaii’s Second & Third Circuit Family Courts and at the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility
Group: Crime Prevention and Justice Assistance Division
The Youth Level of Service Inventory (YLSI) is an assessment instrument used by juvenile justice professionals to measure juvenile offenders’ “risks and needs” with regard to various criminogenic factors, such as offense history, family circumstances, educational/vocational skills or deficiencies, substance abuse, etc. YLSI data provide objective, valid information that is useful for determining the appropriate types and levels of case supervision and treatment/intervention procedures to use with individual juvenile offenders. The YLSI is also useful for identifying the risk of re-offending, so that limited resources can be directed to the offenders who are most in need of services and close supervision. At the time the data were compiled for this study, the YLSI was used in Hawaii by the Second Circuit Family Court (serving the islands of Maui, Molokai, and Lanai), the Third Circuit Family Court (serving the island of Hawaii), and the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility (HYCF).
