Reports Improving Criminal Justice Response Program Arrest (ICJR) Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress

Arrest (ICJR) Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress

Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.

The lack of connectivity within and across disciplines created a training gap that made it a challenge to expeditiously reach out to the “masses.” The tendency for first responders to work in “silos” is slowly changing through collaborations. But it truly is a process. The importance of this project is evidenced in the connections on the state level. With a single email or phone call an identified issue can be
added to the annual training for the magistrates and prosecutors. This level of collaboration and shared concern for improving the criminal justice system did not exist prior to Arrest Program funding.
