Document concerning tribal justice systems and sovereignty considerations
Survivors of high impact crime in Colorado have the opportunity to contact CO Victim Services at DOC to request the Victim Offender Dialog (VOD) service. Not all offenders qualify for the opportunity to meet with the people they harmed in order to take responsibility and do what they can to repair the harm. Monica carefully screens the offenders on the cases where the victim/survivor requests a VOD. If she approves a volunteer facilitator team spends significant time preparing all parties to meet. When everyone is ready, the trained volunteer facilitators and the survivor/victim along with their support person will meet face to face with the person responsible for the harm.

A resource mentioned in the Restorative Justice / Restorative Practices Part 2 webinar.
The Tribal Justice System Planning Process (TJSPP) was developed to best meet the needs of the tribal grantees as they develop written strategic plans. The written plans are created through a data informed planning process that guides justice system development to promote public safety and effective justice system operations.
