Your evaluation should focus on one of the following: o offenders in a disadvantaged or minority group within the penal system o young adult offenders o mentally disordered offenders o safeguarding children o offending related to the misuse of alcohol or drugs o long-term or indeterminate sentence prisoners In your assignment you should consider: o organisational change and what has influenced policy in your chosen area in relation to risk and rehabilitation o the actual or potential impact upon offenders o how the policies you are looking at have been implemented and the extent to which they have acted as intended o the extent to which professional judgment influences risk assessment practice and a consideration of the associated freedoms and challenges o the way risk assessment practice facilitates and potentially frustrates your interactions with other agencies.
