ACE Risk and Needs Profile
PBNI has utilised the ACE (Assessment, Case Management and Evaluation system) tool since late 2000. The tool is used, in conjunction with the professional judgement of qualified social work staff, to assess the likelihood of general re-offending within a two-year period as well as help plan supervision to target needs and assess progress during this time. During 2016/17, 3,046 people started an order with PBNI, 2,756 (90%) of whom had an ACE risk assessment recorded. This report provides details of the prevalence of the various Social, Personal and Offending factors assessed using ACE among these 2,756 people. The report includes prevalence rates by age, gender, team and whether the individual started a community/custodial sentence.
