responsible for determining the release and management of offenders (Andrews &
Bonta, ________). Bonta, Law, and Hanson ________ assert that it is now

are based on actuarially derived information rather than professional and clinical
judgement" (p.124). Measures such as previous offences, age, income and drug
or alcohol dependency have been used successfully to predict criminal behaviour
(Blackburn, 1993; Bonta et al., __________ ; Webster & Bailes, 2004). Despite
this evidence many violent offenders are still being assessed using professional
judgement
