Assessment of offence history by WARP

In conducting an assessment of a person’s offence history record, the following factors are considered:

  • The nature of offences committed, the relationship between these offences and the requirements of the accredited role
  • When the offence occurred (more recent offences are generally more relevant than earlier offences)
  • The type and severity of the penalty imposed (such as: prison term, community order, fine)
  • If the penalty was imposed by a Magistrate’s Court, or a higher court such as a District Court or the Supreme Court
  • Any pattern of re-offending / frequency of offences
