Predicting recidivism with street gang members / [by] Jean-Pierre Guay. : PS3-1/2012-2E-PDF

Cover image

In Québec, street gangs are now among the newest threats to public safety. Major police efforts to dismantle juvenile prostitution networks or reduce drug trafficking have escalated the flow of juvenile offenders into the adult correctional system. Gang members are a growing presence in the penal system and, to a certain degree, risk assessment creates its own problems. The objective of this research is to examine the applicability of the LS/CMI (Level of Service/Case Management Inventory) to gang members and to identify specific criminogenic needs profiles compared to non-gang offenders.
