Webinar - Tribal-State Corrections Collaboration Strategies for Meeting the Needs of Native Inmates
Many Native inmates are housed in state-run facilities or under supervision of state-supported community corrections programs. To increase the possibility of positive outcomes for these individuals, state correctional agencies are working with Tribal justice leaders to develop and implement programs that provide culturally-sensitive services to tribal members in state correctional programs. In this webinar, the Director the New Mexico Department of Corrections Office of Recidivism Reduction discussed the implementation of the New Mexico State Tribal Collaboration Act and the programs provided to meet the needs of tribal members in the state’s correctional institutions. In addition the Chief Corrections Officer for the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe and his counterpart from Washington State Probation discussed their collaboration to provide services to tribal members under supervision of state probation.
