Women's Risk Need Assessment (WRNA) 

The WRNA instruments are the only validated, peer-reviewed risk/need instruments in the public domain specifically designed by and for system-impacted women. The WRNA not only measures women's specific criminogenic needs, but also their strengths, to drive a comprehensive, holistic case-plan designed to work alongside women and their gender-and trauma-responsive treatment and supervision.

Lethality Assessment Program (LAP)

The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is a 2-prong risk assessment tool used by responding officers on domestic violence calls that intends to prevent future risk of lethal violence to victims of domestic violence by assessing their risk of lethality and providing immediate referrals to social service providers. Many police departments around the country, including the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), have adopted the LAP.
