The first in a four-part series of interactive, working webinars designed to focus on developing clear, concise policy recommendations for inclusion in any long-term detention plan submitted to Congress under the Tribal Law & Order Act (TLOA).
These detention-focused webinars are part of a larger webinar series that aims to enhance tribal and state collaboration and highlight the benefits of intergovernmental coordination. The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) will jointly host the webinars, sponsored by a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice.
Speakers for the March 30 webinar include A. Elizabeth Griffith, Associate Deputy Director for Policy at the DOJ's Bureau of Justice Assistance, and Carla Flanagan, Associate Director for Corrections within the BIA's Office of Justice Services. This webinar provides a brief informational overview on:
• the basic structure of the long-term detention report mandated by the TLOA;
• the process for input; and
• a summary of federal progress thus far.
Following the introductory overview, the major focus of this working webinar was to gather input and feedback and answer questions from tribal leaders, justice professionals, and various other stakeholders.
