Corrections

BJA NTTAC supports communities and corrections facilities with reentry programs, probation and supervision officer safety, and partnership building among corrections officials, law enforcement representatives, and community members.

Our Work

  • In Imperial County, a rural community in California, BJA NTTAC worked with the Community Corrections Institute (CCI) to help the Imperial County Probation Department minimize the injuries that probation officers often encounter in the field. CCI conducted a needs assessment and developed a tailored program with safety and tactical training sessions to meet those needs.

  • The Osborne Association reached to BJA NTTAC for assistance as they began planning to transform the former Fulton Street Correctional Facility (NY) into a comprehensive reentry center for people returning to the community following incarceration. Through BJA NTTAC, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) worked with the Osborne Association to facilitate strategic planning discussions with community members. LISC also produced an asset map and developed the What’s Next: Community Conversation Toolkit, which will help the Osborne Association select appropriate service providers for the reentry center.
