Probation Assessment Tools and Related Resources for Tribal Justice Personnel
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

The Council of State Governments, American Probation and Parole Association CSG/APPA will gather information on probation assessment tools and related resources for Indian Country and provide training that will assist justice representatives in implementing cost effective supervision strategies that are appropriate for tribal communities. A major deliverable will be the development of a Desktop Guide which will educate tribal community supervision personnel of the important role assessment tools play in community corrections, and provide a catalog of available, valid assessment tools (screening, risk, treatment, etc.) In addition, two training modules will be developed targeted to tribal justice personnel that discuss the role and impact assessments play in community supervision; pitfalls to avoid; and strategies for utilizing the results to develop effective case or supervision plans. The training modules will be pilot tested to an audience of tribal justice personnel during two national conferences.
