Annotation: This article describes the work of the Federal Office of Justice Programs (OJP) Indian affairs coordinator, who is responsible for implementing and coordinating Federal efforts to aid Indian tribes in the administration of justice and the provision of public safety services.
Abstract: To ensure the successful implementation of programs and projects, the Indian affairs coordinator either leads or participates in the following working groups: the OJP Indian Issues Work Group, which coordinates, shares information, or undertakes initiatives on issues such as information technology and data collection; CIRCLE Project Team, which is a comprehensive pilot project to improve the use of Federal resources to reduce crime rates and better serve victims in tribal communities; the Alcohol and Substance Abuse in Indian Country Working Group, which coordinates the efforts of Federal agencies to address alcohol abuse in tribal communities; and the Juvenile Detention Facilities and Programming in Indian Country Working Group, which coordinates basic services to youth in tribal facilities. The Indian affairs coordinator has also worked closely with the Bureau of Justice Assistance to ensure tribal participation in the OJP Information Technology Initiative, which focuses on training and technical assistance for information technology in tribal communities. Another key responsibility of the Indian affairs coordinator is to maintain communication with Indian Country through such means as the OJP Web site and the National Tribal Justice Resources Center, a national clearinghouse that helps Indian tribes, States, and localities obtain information on tribal justice systems. 2 notes
