The Bureau of Justice Assistance, the National Criminal Justice Training Center, the Tribal Judicial Institute, and the American Probation and Parole Association are partnering to conduct a series of listening sessions relevant to community supervision of tribal members involved in criminal legal systems. Effective supervision and reentry services for tribal members placed on tribal, local, county, state or federal probation is important to reducing rates of recidivism and enforcing court orders. Jurisdictional collaborations can be an important part of developing effective supervision and reentry services for tribal members and helping them access resources from local, county, state and federal corrections agencies.
The goal of these sessions will be to identify predominant issues, challenges, obstacles, and promising practices impacting community supervision and reentry so that targeted technical assistance may be provided to enhance collaborations and support community supervision services for tribal members involved in the criminal legal system. **Session Schedule:** 1:00 - 3:00 pm CT **Session 1:** Developing Effective Services and Fostering Collaborations to Support Community Supervision for Tribal Members Involved in Criminal Legal Systems
Some of the issues that will be discussed will include but not be limited to: * Communication challenges between tribal, local, county, state or federal prison, jails or probation, as it relates to tribal members. * Tribal access to a comprehensive continuum of services for corrections clients. * Tribal awareness of and access to services available in the local, county, state or federal agencies serving corrections clients. * Challenges and opportunities relevant to tribal, state and federal community supervision collaborations.
