are a civilian member in the Domestic Violence Unit of a police agency for which you provide administrative and operational support to assist front line officers in their investigation of domestic violence matters. One role you have is to assist police officers in completing a risk assessment tool to buttress any Bail Hearing (Show Cause) conditions that may include recommendations to a Judge opposing bail to the accused alleged to have committed a violent act against anyone.

Rationale Risk assessment is a complex process that involves clinical analysis, actuarial data, and professional judgment. Risk assessment is a critical part of the justice system as it affects policing strategy, correctional planning, and bail and release. Civilian members of policing forces are often responsible for contributing to risk assessment reports. In this assignment, you will create a risk assessment report based on a number of original documents and your own completion of the ODARA tool. Please note that this scenario is comprised of a fictional storyline. Other than the police officer and City of Orillia all other characters, times, dates and circumstances were imagined. Any resemblance to actual events is purely coincidental. Assignment You are a civilian member in the Domestic Violence Unit of a police agency for which you provide administrative and operational support to assist front line officers in their investigation of domestic violence matters. One role you have is to assist police officers in completing a risk assessment tool to buttress any Bail Hearing (Show Cause) conditions that may include recommendations to a Judge opposing bail to the accused alleged to have committed a violent act against anyone. The police officer has decided that a Bail Hearing (Show Cause) is the appropriate direction to take with this matter and provided an outline of the situation under investigation. Read the various sources of information provided by the police officer and provide a risk assessment analysis using the ODARA risk assessment instrument. Your scoring for this risk assessment instrument must be sourced by sufficient case-specific evidence (using a separate page) to justify the rating you are assigning on any individual factor (especially if your score is a yes). After you have completed your analysis of risk, you are to provide a separate summary report noting the risk level posed by Mr. Stack using the ODARA instrument. You can find an online copy of the ODARA on the following link: https://www.knfp.ch/en/risk-assessment-tools/odara. Once completed, click on the Download ODARA report button to download the completed report in PDF format (which you must submit along with your essay). Your analysis of risk report should include: 1. Your method (e.g., ODARA analysis of risk scoring sheets), 2. Your database analysis (describe your evidence to substantiate individual factor scores), 3. Your conclusion regarding risk (i.e., the score interpretation graph and risk summary statement). In summary, you are to provide an Analysis of Risk that the officer may use to substantiate a recommendation of BAIL OPPOSED or BAIL WITH/WITHOUT CONDITIONS for Robert Stack. Finally, briefly examine the reliability of the ODARA assessment using peer-reviewed sources (minimum of three) and in your own words explain what the advantages and disadvantages are of using a risk assessment tool like the ODARA. Please attach a completed ODARA with your report. Format to be in APA, 12 font, with cover page. Please note that there is no minimum/maximum length to this assignment. You are graded on the quality and the depth of your discussions
