Program Evaluation and Research
We use our decades of experience to conduct program evaluations and research on issues related to violence risk assessment and management. Program evaluation can help organizations determine whether they are providing services in a way that is effective, efficient, and consistent with intended goals or best practices. Research can help organizations confirm they are implementing risk assessment policies and procedures, including the use of specific tools, with good reliability (consistency), validity (accuracy), and utility (impact).
Policy Review and Development
We help organizations and companies develop rational, reasonable, and defensible policies and procedures related to the prevention, assessment, and management of violence risk. To this end, we consult with stakeholders, including front line staff, to determine whether policies are written, implemented, and evaluated in a way that will help an organization to provide high-quality services and meet established standards of practice in the field.
