For individuals returning from incarceration, successful reentry depends on intergovernmental collaboration that is responsive to both community and returnees’ needs, so that chances for recidivism are minimized and public health and safety are maximized. That’s especially true in Indian country, where the complex nature of jurisdiction makes coordination among Tribal, Federal, state and local justice systems particularly challenging.
The OJP Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Executive Office for the United States Attorneys’ National Indian Country Training Initiative, in partnership with the American Probation and Parole Association, will host two Tribal Intergovernmental Reentry Workshops. These two interactive workshops will provide participants with the tools they need to develop effective reentry plans based on the sharing of operational, organizational, and culture-based concepts and processes that result in the identification of critical services and interventions needed to reduce recidivism and victimization.
The Workshop will be offered twice and delivered in the following locations: Columbia, South Carolina, January 16-19, 2019 and Phoenix, Arizona, February 19-21, 2019.
