The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has developed a toolkit to help tribal justice system practitioners create or enhance reentry programs for American Indians and Alaska Natives returning from jail or prison. The Planning a Reentry program: A Toolkit for Tribal Communities offers resources and insights on forming a planning team and navigating through all the key steps of developing a reentry program, including developing partnerships, refining your reentry program, measuring program impact, and planning for sustainability.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) released a new resource, Reentry Starts Here: A Guide for Youth in Long-Term Juvenile Corrections and Treatment Programs. This toolkit outlines the steps that youth in juvenile corrections and treatment programs can take to prepare for reentry, from seeking support services, to requesting a school transfer, to finding employment.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) VALOR Officer Safety Initiative recently released the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Toolkit. The toolkit provides a comprehensive snapshot of federal resources available to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to assist them in learning about and promoting officer safety.
