The Massachusetts Arrest Screening Tool for Law Enforcement (MASTLE) is an objective screening tool validated in Massachusetts jurisdictions that assesses the likelihood a youth taken into police custody for a criminal offense will be arrested again or will fail to appear for arraignment. This information will allow police supervisors and commanders to make appropriate pre-processing decisions based on the presence of youths’ risk factors; such as, whether to hold youth in pre-arraignment detention at the police station or to divert youth away from formal arrest.
