Tribal Response and Court Enhancement Strategies (TRACES) Project
Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, the goal of the TRACES project is to enhance tribal criminal justice systems through training and technical assistance that is focused on improving the capacity of emerging and established tribal courts to collaborate with state and local courts, improve data collection and communications with technology, and improve outcomes for American Indian/Alaska Native victims of crime.
This project provides training and technical assistance through INJ’s E-Training Center, combined with on-site workshops by staff and consultants with expertise working with tribes and tribal entities. Training will be tailored to address operations management (including development of community collaborative teams), data collection, protocol development, and other systemic obstacles confronting tribal criminal justice communities. This project will also encourage expansion of the role of tribal court systems to reach out to local and state judiciary for the purpose of working together to improve outcomes for AI/AN victims of crime.
