Justice Information Sharing

The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP), established in 2017, provides federal support through the U.S. Department of Justice to tribal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutors to help reduce violent crime. PSP sites participate in a three-year program and receive tailored support and training and technical assistance opportunities. PSP recently released their annual report highlighting 21 sites participating in the program, 5 of which graduated from the program and 10 of which were added to the program in 2019.

As part of National Native American Heritage month, we’re highlighting the work of the Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI), who provides training and technical assistance to tribal communities. One of their grant programs, under the Bureau of Justice Assistance, is to provide training and technical assistance to Tribal Healing to Wellness (Drug) Courts.

The Institute for Intergovernmental Research, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, issued a solicitation to support state, local, and tribal governments in buying equipment necessary for drug take backs and disposals of unused drugs from law enforcement, first responders, and/or citizens. To complement National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, this funding opportunity allows communities to expand this initiative all year round.

Webinar – Life-Saving Partners: 9-1-1 and Suicide Lifelines Working Together

Dispatcher and crisis hotline staff both play important roles in helping individuals in moments of crisis. Although they both share the goal of helping the caller, the steps each role takes can differ greatly. This webinar will teach what those steps are, how shared information can speed up the process, and how each agency can best help the other to save a caller’s life.
