The coronavirus pandemic has created a number of unexpected challenges for corrections agencies across the country. In an effort to slow the spread of the virus, many agencies are being pressured to reduce prison and jail populations immediately. Vant4ge is here to help with free tools for Inmate Release – a Free Vant4gePoint™ account with instant access to the Static Risk Assessment (SRA). This validated assessment is already used in several US jurisdictions to determine subjects’ risk to re-offend.

Making an Impact with Free Tools for Inmate Release

With these free tools for inmate release, key decision-makers will be able to determine the lowest-risk populations. From that point, they can easily choose to release those who are most likely to successfully reintegrate into society, while posing a lower risk to community safety. At the same time, the reduced population will keep staff and inmates safer during this pandemic.

What the Static Risk Assessment Does

Vant4ge’s Static Risk Assessment (SRA) is an industry-proven risk assessment for adult offenders. It helps personnel predict recidivism by type of crime (violence, property, or drug offenses). This allows jail and prison administration to tailor the most effective decisions for each individual offender.

The SRA is a 26-question assessment of “static” factors and scores that determine future risks in three areas: felony, non-violent felony, and a violent felony. These risk scores lead to the classification of offenders into one of five possible risk levels. Agencies can easily use this scoring system to identify the population of low-risk offenders that should be considered for early release during this crisis.
