The Psychiatric Security Review Board's mission is to protect the public by working with partnering agencies to ensure persons under its jurisdiction receive the necessary services and support to reduce the risk of future dangerous behavior using recognized principles of risk assessment, victims' interest and person centered care. The PSRB's values are rooted in our legislative mandate to protect the public and we achieve maximum levels of public safety through our values:
- Due Process: Observing individuals' legal rights and adhering to principles of procedural fairness.
- Research: Decision-making and organizational practices driven and influenced by the best available data.
- Recovery: Clients understand and receive treatment for the psychiatric and comorbid conditions that contributed to their past criminal offenses and have opportunities to achieve health, home, purpose, and community.
- Partnership: Promoting active communication and collaboration within and between the systems serving PSRB clients and the community at large.
