Abstract: This reconviction study follows a previous needs analysis, using the Level of Supervision Inventory–Revised (LSI-R), with English prisoners. LSI-R scores at prison discharge and reconviction data are available for a sample of the original population. The reconvicted offenders have a higher LSI-R total score, are in higher risk bands, and have higher levels of need on several subscales. With statistical control of key variables, the difference in total score remains, but differences in subscale scores largely disappear. Multivariate analysis reveals a robust effect of LSI-R total score, but not subscale and risk band scores, in contributing to models of both reconviction and time to reconviction. The study provides support for risk assessment with the LSI-R in the English prison service.
