CRIJ 4341-01 Fall 2012 “Presentence Investigation Report” (PSI) Instructions
For this assignment, you are a Presentence Investigation Officer (usually a probation officer) writing a Presentence Investigation Report (read Walsh & Stohr Chapter 6). You must use “SafeAssignment” to submit your PSI Report—click on the “SafeAssign-PSI” button. Your report must include detailed information within all of the required PSI sections and must be in the proper format.
