Community Corrections Problem-Solving through Web 2.0
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

The Council of State Governments/American Probation and Parole Association (CSG/APPA), in conjunction with Institute for Public Safety Partnerships (IPSP), with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) are developing an online learning and collaboration portal (i.e., Community Corrections Connect) that uses Web 2.0 principles of communication, collaboration and information exchange to provide innovative web-based training and technical assistance in the areas of community partnerships and problem-solving. The development of this online community portal will provide a cost-effective way to, on a nationwide level, deliver training, provide follow-up technical assistance, and provide an outlet for probation and parole officers to engage in collaborative communications on evidenced-based practices relating to partnership building, community engagement, and problem-solving.

In summary, the primary objectives of this project are to:

  • Create a learning and collaboration portal (i.e. Community Corrections Connect).
  • Develop and deliver self-paced online training courses and live webinars focused on community corrections partnerships and problem solving.
  • Create and facilitate online learning communities where community corrections and allied professionals can dialogue and share information.
