Greetings Healing to Wellness Court Team Members and Advocates,

Below find information on a webinar regarding an application for technical assistance to start a joint-jurisdiction court in collaboration with one of your neighboring counties/municipalities/state governments. This technical assistance project was first launched last year with the Shingle Springs Miwok Indians—El Dorado County Join Jurisdiction Juvenile Healing to Wellness Court. It is based on the model started by the Leech Lake—Cass County Joint Jurisdiction Adult Healing to Wellness Court.

For those of you attending this week’s Indian Nations Conference<ovcinc.org>, the Shingle Springs—El Dorado County team will be presenting about their planning efforts:

Therapeutic Justice: Lessons from the Shingle Springs—El Dorado County Joint Jurisdiction Healing to Wellness Court (Sponsored by Bureau of Justice Assistance<http://www.ojp.gov/BJA/>)
This workshop will explore the intersecting history of Indigenous justice through healing and Western restorative justice, resulting in Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts. The workshop will then explore the joint-jurisdiction model recently employed by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians for a Healing to Wellness Court, strategies for engaging in various other models of tribal-state collaboration, and how these models can be adapted to other tribal services.

Pre-Grant Application Webinar: Project TEAM: Helping Tribes and State/Local Governments Create Joint Jurisdiction Collaborations<http://ncja-avectra.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT0zODk3NTQ1JnA9MSZ1PTc4ODkzMjI0NiZsaT0yMzU3Njc1NQ/index.html>

 On Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 3:00 p.m eastern time, please join us for an exciting webinar on tribal-state court collaboration presented by members of Project TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). Project TEAM is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice to provide training and technical assistance (TTA) to sites who wish to design and implement joint jurisdiction justice projects. Project TEAM’s model is based on the successful experience of Judge John Smith and Judge Korey Wahwassuck who created the nation’s first joint jurisdiction court in Minnesota. The Cass County-Leech Lake Wellness Court was successful in reducing recidivism, improving public safety, and helping to significantly improve the relationship between the tribe and the surrounding community. In 2013, BJA funded Project TEAM to provide TTA to the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians and El Dorado County Superior Court in California. Following TTA assistance, the tribe and county plan to launch a joint-jurisdiction juvenile and family wrap-around wellness court in the spring of 2015.

The BJA has authorized Project TEAM to provide TTA to two additional communities. The National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) is hosting this webinar to introduce Project TEAM staff, describe the TTA services offered, and review the application procedure for TTA assistance.

Presenters on the webinar will include all Project TEAM staff led by Judges Korey Wahwassuck and John P. Smith, and Judges Christine Williams and Suzanne Kingsbury from the Shingle Springs-El Dorado County initiative.
