  • Assessment and Management of Risk for Intimate Partner Violence by Police Officers Using the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide
    Law and Human Behavior, 2011
    Co-Authors: Henrik Belfrage, Susanne Strand, Jennifer E. Storey, Andrea L. Gibas, P. Randall Kropp, Stephen D. Hart

    Abstract:

    Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a crime that is present in all countries, seriously impacts victims, and demands a great deal of time and resources from the criminal justice system. The current study examined the use of the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide , 2nd ed. (SARA; Kropp, Hart, Webster, & Eaves, 1995 ), a structured professional judgment risk Assessment and management tool for IPV, by police officers in Sweden over a follow-up of 18 months. SARA risk Assessments had significant predictive validity with respect to risk management recommendations made by police, as well as with recidivism as indexed by subsequent contacts with police. Risk management mediated the association between risk Assessment and recidivism: High levels of intervention were associated with decreased recidivism in high risk cases, but with increased recidivism in low risk cases. The findings support the potential utility of police-based risk Assessment and management of IPV, and in particular the belief that appropriately structured risk Assessment and management decisions can prevent violence.

  • the spousal assault risk Assessment sara Guide reliability and validity in adult male offenders
    Law and Human Behavior, 2000
    Co-Authors: Randall P Kropp, Stephen D. Hart

    Abstract:

    We evaluated the reliability and validity of judgments concerning risk for violence made using the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide (SARA; Kropp, Hart, Webster, & Eaves, 1994, 1995, 1998). We analyzed SARA ratings in six samples of adult male offenders (total N = 2681). The distribution of ratings indicated that offenders were quite heterogeneous with respect to the presence of individual risk factors and to overall perceived risk. Structural analyses of the risk factors indicated moderate levels of internal consistency and item homogeneity. Interrater reliability was high for judgments concerning the presence of individual risk factors and for overall perceived risk. SARA ratings significantly discriminated between offenders with and without a history of spousal violence in one sample, and between recidivistic and nonrecidivistic spousal assaulters in another. Finally, SARA ratings showed good convergent and discriminant validity with respect to other measures related to risk for general and violent criminality.
