Example text

Given the close and routine working relationships of YOTs, there is a risk of insularity and homogeneity, and public protection panels offer scrutiny, challenge and transparency to difficult and challenging decisions. Effective decision making is also dependent on accurate and reliable assessments of the risk of harm, and urgent attention should be given to the standard of current assessments of young offenders (see Baker, 2008). Such assessments need to include attention to key triggers and risk factors, including abuse, trauma and victimisation.

Two exceptions are that of Bryan and Doyle (2003) who give a view from the ‘inside’ on the creation of MAPPA and the first year of operation (and who mention but do not detail YOT involvement); and Lieb (2003) who briefly discusses this issue when reviewing the proposals for setting up MAPPA and the first annual reports. Lieb notes (2003, p 214) that, in some areas, MAPPA explicitly ‘decided not to handle young offenders [because] the majority of young people do not pose a serious risk of harm to the public’.

It is also important to note that young offenders who commit serious violent offences are not necessarily specialists, and do commit other offences (Farrington, 1995, 1998). The Asset risk of harm section considers the following to be key factors in the identification of cases of concern: • • • • evidence of any harm-related behaviour by the young person, including behaviour under preparation, particular victim characteristics, offender factors and the results of any harmful behaviour (including any unintentional results); pattern, frequency and severity of harmful behaviour; current static and dynamic risk indicators; assessment of future harmful behaviour (Asset: Risk of Serious Harm: Full Assessment; YJB, 2006c).
