Disposition Recommendation Matrix

Disposition Matrix

Key Points of the Disposition Matrix include:

  • Low-risk offenders remain in the community with minimal supervision;
  • Moderate-risk offenders typically placed in more structured community programs, with intensive probation supervision for higher risk youth;
  • Residential placement reserved for the highest risk offenders after community-based alternatives have been exhausted.

The Disposition Matrix is to be implemented according to specific guidelines regarding Structured Decision-Making and the Disposition Matrix.
