Description

The Rapid Risk of Violence Screen (RROVS) is a brief screening tool that is designed for use in community-based behavioral health service settings to identify people who may need comprehensive violence risk assessment. This study examined the association between the RROVS total score and future criminal justice involvement including violent offenses. Results from this study suggest that the RROVS screening tool has predictive validity as it is associated with later criminal justice involvement with a violent offense. The RROVS may be a helpful tool for community-based behavioral health providers to screen incoming clients for violence risk to inform whether additional assessment for violence potential is warranted.
