Bricks and Mortar: Facility Construction and Operation
This webinar, hosted live on April 27, 2011, is the third 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 upcoming webinars, sponsored by a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice.
This webinar provides a brief informational overview on:
the basic framework for detention in Indian country (type, number, and location of facilities);
challenges of construction and operation;
successful models; and
strategies for the future.
Following the introductory overview, the major focus of this working webinar was gathering feedback and answering questions from tribal leaders, justice professionals, and various other stakeholders.
