Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:Overview, purpose or need The Department of Public Safety (PSD) and Hawaii Paroling Authority (HPA) understand that practitioners in criminal justice traditionally evaluate public safety based on the relationship between crime (socially unacceptable behavior) and punishment (incarceration). However, such measures fail to address an offenders criminogenic needs and risk factors, those needs that place them at risk of crime and repeating crimes upon release. With at least 95 percent of offenders returning to the community eventually, these public safety measures should begin to account for what evidence shows are risk areas in which an offender or parolee can improve. Mechanisms should be established to help offenders and parolees reconnect with families, ensure that rehabilitation programs address complex offender and parolee health and human service needs, and challenge the policies and practices that restrict an offenders or parolees ability to obtain and retain employment. Success in measures such as these can be used to inform evaluations of public safety, and such an approach should begin when an offender has their initial contact with the criminal justice system. Society can no longer afford to provide treatment or services as an afterthought. Public safety requires that the criminal justice field become proactive in its interventions and begin focusing on offender programming that successfully addresses an offenders or parolees criminogenic needs and risk factors. Programs should focus on the criminogenic needs and risk factors that correlate highly with criminal conduct, understanding that most inmates are not high risk for recidivism because they have one risk or need, but rather are high risk because they have multiple risks and need factors. Researchers have identified eight major risk/needs factors: History of anti-social behavior; Anti-social personality pattern; Anti-social cognition; Anti-social associates; Family/marital status
