Risk Assessments

Risk Assessment is a process that identifies all risk factors within an agency – the conditions, characteristics, or attributes – that could interfere with the agency’s ability to achieve its objectives. The process consists of a review of the agency’s policies and procedures, combined with interviews of agency leadership and on-site observations of agency operations.  


During this process we obtain input from management, and process owners. We collect their views on the risks within their areas along with the critical internal processes, procedures, projects, or programs associated with the identified risks. The risks are then ranked based on impact and likelihood of occurrence.  


The result of the risk assessment is used to drive effective change because it provides a tool to further scrutinize higher-risk areas and make any necessary changes to the adequacy of existing controls and activities to mitigate the risks. A major benefit of a Risk Assessments for law enforcement agencies is that it helps determine gaps in liability exposure.
