Maneuvering the Jurisdictional Maze When Planning for Reentry in Tribal Jurisdictions 

2018-06-18 10:41 AM

There are 565 federally recognized tribes that must navigate a jurisdictional maze at many different justice system levels when trying to plan for home reentry for tribal members who have been incarcerated. Unique challenges for tribes exist in several areas, including considerable shortcomings in the sharing of information about tribal members who are incarcerated in non-tribal facilities. There is no formal process in place to notify authorities in the Nations of pending releases. In addition, successful transitions are hampered by the lack of appropriate strategies and a well-planned and structured reentry process. Inadequate reentry services and conditions of release also can impede the ability to establish safeguards for victims and for the family. This workshop provides participants with an understanding of these challenges as well as some potential solutions.
