As part of the Safe at Home initiative (see National Datasets – Appendix 3 for more information) the Tasmania Police and the Department of Justice developed the RAST which is used by operational police when attending a family violence incident. The RAST has been implemented to ensure consistency in the approach and assessment of offenders in relation to their risk of repeating the violence. The tool is used to classify perpetrators risk of reoffending on a scale so that police can make informed decisions about actions that need to be taken (Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies (TILES), 2009).
