Many jurisdictions across the country are working to improve sharing of vital justice information across jurisdictional and agency boundaries. Tribal, state, and local agencies are developing methods of sharing information related to management of sex offenders, homeland security, and child welfare issues. This webinar will highlight collaborative approaches to justice information sharing that respect tribal sovereignty and traditions while providing public safety to all citizens. Tribal law enforcement officials will discuss efforts to share information across jurisdictional boundaries as partners in the Regional Organized Crime Information Center for the Southeastern United States and the East Valley Fusion Center in Phoenix, Arizona. A representative of the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS) will provide information about resources that facilitate criminal justice information sharing among tribal, state, and local justice agencies.
This webinar is part of the State & Tribal Collaboration Webinar Series. Funded by BJA and jointly hosted by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) and the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), this webinar series aims to enhance state and tribal collaboration and highlight the benefits of intergovernmental coordination. Each webinar in this series focuses on a different aspect of state and tribal collaboration.
