3-A.Risk assessment; immunity from liability.
Make a good faith effort to supplement any assessment tool for all domestic violence offenders with a validated, evidence-based
domestic violence risk assessment recommended by the Maine Commission on Domestic and Sexual Abuse, established in Title 5,
section 12004-I, subsection 74-C, and approved by the Department of Public Safety. A probation and parole or intensive supervision
program officer shall implement protocols to override risk assessment scores based on the presence of domestic violence risk
factors that indicate a higher risk.
Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the administration of the domestic violence risk assessment pursuant to this
subsection or the failure to administer the assessment does not subject any state, municipal or county official or employee
to liability in a civil action; and
