The Offending Behaviour of Those Sentenced to the Order for Lifelong Restriction
The RMA are pleased to publish this report, which includes the first analysis of the offending behaviour of individuals sentenced to an OLR.
The findings will increase our understanding of the people subject to the unique sentence and contribute towards our discussions relating to public protection.
The RMA are committed to making Scotland safer by promoting effective practice in risk assessment and risk management. The findings in this research are expected to inform discussions around risk assessment and management strategies to protect the public from risk of serious harm.
The report provides a comprehensive overview of the individuals on this sentence and also looks back at the original MacLean recommendations to consider if the OLR has been imposed as expected.
