TTA Today Blog

Welcome to BJA NTTAC's TTA Today blog! TTA Today posts tell the story of training and technical assistance (TTA) engagements through individual perspectives, including those of DOJ and BJA leaders, staff, technical assistance providers, subject matter experts, community members, and other relevant stakeholders. These posts serve as an informal venue to share relevant updates or best practices from the criminal justice community, as well as to feature first-hand accounts of how TTA impacts state, local, and tribal communities across the nation.

Background

The Boston Police Department submitted a request to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) to address the release and reentry of approximately 600 to 1100 inmates, which will occur in the next several months. The release of these inmates comes as a result of the discovery that drug evidence tampering and document and test result falsification may have impacted thousands of cases that were processed at the William A. Hinton State Laboratory Institute.
