Results are presented from a norming and validation study of the Ramsey County Proxy assessment tool. “The Proxy is three-question screening instrument used to triage community corrections populations for the purpose of moving those at low risk to minimum supervision without further assessment” (p. 1). Sections of this document cover: background and methodology; individual Proxy items’ relative importance; further examination of offending patterns; development of the proposed assessment tool; and recommendations for the use of the misdemeanor court case assessment. Appended are copies of the “Ramsey County PROXY Data Collection Form for Completion by City DA staff/intern”, and the “Ramsey County PROXY Data Collection Form for Completion by Warrants Clerks”.
