“Joint Jurisdiction Courts: A Manual for Developing Tribal, Local, State & Federal Justice Collaborations” now available from OJP Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), through the Center for Evidence-based Policy of the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Project T.E.A.M.
This manual is a guide that describes the process developed in one Minnesota community and adopted by other jurisdictions including communities in California and Alaska. The manual describes the benefits of intergovernmental collaboration and provides suggested guidelines for developing a new joint jurisdiction justice collaborative based on identified needs, tribal and community culture, evidence-based treatment principals, articulated goals and defined outcomes and includes best practices and lessons learned from Project T.E.A.M.’s work.
The manual and supplementary materials can be found on the Project T.E.A.M. website: http://www.ohsu.edu/projectteam/manual. Also visit the Project T.E.A.M. website: www.ohsu.edu/projectteam.
