OYA Violent Incident Risk Assessment
Group: Oregon Youth Authority
To increase the probability that the agency protects the public, including staff and youth in OYA’s care, and provides safe environments, OYA has developed the OYA Violent Incident Risk Assessment (O-VIRA) to predict the likelihood that a youth will engage in a violent incident within the first six months in close custody settings. By determining which youth are likely to engage in violent behavior during incarceration, staff will be in a better position to anticipate problems and reduce the likelihood that they will occur. This research summary outlines the methods used to develop the assessment and discusses possible applications of the tool.
