Justice Team Training to Support Tribal Community Corrections
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

Date: July 22-23, 2014
Location: Appleton, WI

The American Probation & Parole Association, in partnership with the National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) of Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC), through funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, announce an opportunity for tribal justice teams to submit an application to be part of a Justice Team Training to Support Tribal Community Corrections.

This is a unique opportunity to bring together jurisdictional justice teams (judges, prosecutors, public defenders, community corrections, detention, treatment, law enforcement, victim advocates, etc.) to identify struggle(s) in the support/implementation of community corrections, learn skills to problem solve as a team, and develop an action plan to address identified struggle(s).

Additionally, the justice team will have the opportunity to interact with justice teams from other tribal jurisdictions to exchange ideas and work together to help solve identified struggle(s) and hopefully establish a cadre of contacts that can serve as resources after the training.

Scholarships to cover the travel and lodging are provided for up to 5 members per team.

Agenda topics to improve the supervision of tribal members on community supervision include:

  • Fundamentals of an Effective Community Supervision Program (Pretrial, Probation, Parole/Reentry)
  • Developing & Maintaining Effective Justice Team Partnerships
  • Developing & Maintaining Effective Justice Team Communication & Information Sharing
  • Strategies for Problem Solving & Consensus Building
  • Justice Team Action Planning

Each topic includes activities designed to inform the Justice Team Action Plan
