Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $300,000)

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians will implement the Tribal JADG Program purposes numbers 3, 4, 10 and 15, which will serve over 300 juveniles annually. This project will enhance its juvenile criminal justice system by reducing the number of backlogged cases and reducing the number of adjudicated juvenile cases through pre-trial services including deferral, diversion, or referral, through a collaborative effort with other tribal programs and resources. This project will enable the justice system to more effectively and expeditiously handle juvenile delinquency cases and reduce the backlog of current caseload. The project includes an assessment of Red Lake's technology needs and case tracking software that can be maintained on an inter-agency basis. The juvenile code will be amended to allow the courts to be more effective and efficient in holding juvenile offenders accountable and reducing recidivism. Research based knowledge will be infused into the design, development and implementation of court-based strategies to prevent juvenile delinquency among youth while at the same time address restorative and culturally appropriate approaches to addressing youth crime issues.CA/NCF
