CopShare: The CopShare list serve was created in an effort to eliminate "reinventing the wheel." When searching for information about a particular topic, the most efficient method for gathering this information tends to be obtaining information that has previously been collected by someone else. Therefore, a law enforcement agency, for example, in need of a policy and procedure on a specific subject can request the policy information through CopShare by simply sending an e-mail to CopShare@cji.net with a brief explanation of the information needed. The information request will then be disseminated to all other list serve members with the anticipation of an informative response being generated. Once the information is received, it will then be forwarded back to the requesting agency. To learn more about CopShare, visit http://www.pathfinder.edu/CopShare%20index.htm. Requests for CopShare membership can be made on-line at the following web address: www.ncrle.net. Requests for CopShare membership can also be made by mail, e-mail or fax to Mr. Harold Stuart:

The National Indian Youth Police Academy was a new 2-week long program designed to encourage Native American youth to develop careers in law enforcement. The first annual session was held this August in San Bernardino, California.

Tribal Drug Court Training and Technical Assistance This project will assess the training needs of DCPO tribal drug court grantees and develop a training program and curricula to assist tribal governments in developing, implementing, and enhancing effective tribal drug court programs that reduce recidivism and improve abstinence. It also will develop a culturally relevant training program for faculty and technical assistance providers working with Tribal Drug Court grantees and other interested Indian tribes on drug courts. In addition, a strategy will be developed for providing onsite technical assistance for grantees.

Training and Technical Assistance for Indian Nation Juvenile Justice Systems This program seeks to increase the capacity of Indian tribes to provide adequate and appropriate juvenile justice responses to youth crime, violence, and victimization. The goal of this ongoing technical assistance program is to help equip tribal governments with the necessary information and tools to develop or enhance comprehensive, systemwide approaches to reduce juvenile delinquency, violence, and victimization and to increase the safety of their communities. Types of technical assistance have included juvenile justice and detention needs assessments and program reviews, development of community-based alternatives to incarceration, training on indigenous justice approaches, and seminars on comprehensive juvenile justice planning.

Training and Technical Assistance for Children's Justice Act (CJA) Grantees The Tribal Law and Policy Institute provides comprehensive, skills-building training and technical assistance to eligible tribes and tribal organizations that receive funding under the Children's Justice Act program. The goal of the project is to assist Children's Justice Act Partnerships for Indian Communities (CJA) grantees in meeting the objectives of their grant programs and in improving the handling of child victim cases through the provision of culturally relevant training and technical assistance services. Primary objectives are to create demonstration projects in Indian communities to improve the investigation, prosecution, and handling of child abuse cases, especially cases of child sexual abuse; assist in the identification, explanation, and dissemination of information concerning promising practices that have been developed by these programs in a manner that will allow other Indian communities to replicate the successes of these demonstration programs; and design, develop, and disseminate culturally relevant training and technical assistance resource materials for CJA grantees.

Tribal Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program
Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) will continue to support CASA programs in Indian country. Court Appointed Special Advocates are appointed by the court to represent a child victim's best interests in child abuse and neglect cases. OVC funding will support four demonstration programs (to be competitively selected), attendance of CASA staff at the National CASA conference, training and technical assistance, and development of guidelines for all 14 tribal CASA programs. For information on CASA resources for Indian tribes, call 1-800-805-6027 or visit the web site at Tribal Court CASA Project.
