Legal Socialization in Moldovan Schools - 0 views

  •  
    INL has provided extensive assistance to the General Police Inspectorate and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to further increase the level of public trust in the Moldovan police force, which is a major goal specified in the 2016-2020 Police Development Plan. While levels of public trust have increased, there is an opportunity to achieve further progress. INL plans to expand its partnership to Moldovan schools to facilitate collaboration between police officers and teachers in reaching out to young people. To support further progress in Moldova, the U.S. Department of State has allocated $650,000 USD in FY 2016 Law Enforcement Reform Funds for a program to support Moldovan communities in preventing juvenile delinquency and raising awareness about civic rights through educational activities for Moldovan youth in coordination with Moldovan law enforcement. The activity will also help to facilitate a fundamental shift of thinking within the police, courts, and community towards restorative justice elements and raise awareness among Moldovan youth about widespread problems such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking in persons. INL is looking for creative and proactive community-based models that focus on bringing Moldovan communities and law enforcement together in the schools.

Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence Related Injury (R01) - 0 views

  •  
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance our understanding about what works to prevent violence that impacts children and youth, collectively referred to as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), including child abuse and neglect, teen dating violence, sexual violence, youth violence, and exposure to adult intimate partner violence. This initiative is intended to support the evaluation of primary prevention strategies, programs, or policies that target universal or selected high-risk populations (i.e., populations that have one or more risk factors that place them at heightened risk for perpetration of violence). Funds are available to conduct such studies focused on preventing child abuse and neglect and at least one other form of violence affecting children and youth, including teen dating violence, sexual violence, youth violence and exposure to adult intimate partner violence as detailed elsewhere in this announcement.

Preventing Violence Against Women in Priority Communities through Expanded Services - 0 views

  •  
    Violence against women continues to affect millions of women and girls each year. Racial and ethnic minority women have a higher documented risk of violence victimization. Recent statistics have identified other priority communities at elevated risk such as the incarcerated, the elderly, and adolescents. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will encourage a focus on preventing and responding to violence against women in these and other priority communities. Harmful social norms, including social constructs around what it means to be a woman or a man, contribute to the risk of perpetrating violence against women. As such, this FOA encourages applications from organizations and coalitions working to prevent violence against women by transforming harmful gender norms through women's empowerment and male engagement efforts. Preliminary evaluation results of OWH's previous work to improve community responses to violence against women highlights the critical need to link women to services from multiple sectors including but not limited to legal assistance; law enforcement; mental health services; substance abuse treatments; and housing. This FOA also encourages applications from organizations and coalitions using multisectoral approaches to provide response services to affected women in their communities.

In particular, this YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop innovative new research directions in the context of enabling transformative DoD capabilities. The long-term goal of the program is to develop the next generation of scientists and engineers in the research community who will focus a significant portion of their future careers on DoD and National Security issues. DARPA is particularly interested in identifying outstanding researchers who have previously not been performers on DARPA programs, but the program is open to all qualified applicants with innovative research ideas.

Access to Justice for the Juvenile Offender Population: Opportunities for Judicial and ... - 0 views

  •  
    This project should generate an increase in the number of juvenile offenders referred to and/or completing alterative sentences, reduce recidivism, and facilitate access to justice for particularly vulnerable juvenile populations, including migrants, the disabled, afro-descendent and indigenous populations, and juveniles suffering from addiction, especially in Limón, Pococí, Puntarenas, San Carlos, the Southern Zone near the Panamanian border, and other vulnerable areas, as identified. Project activities should also facilitate the reinsertion of juvenile offenders into their communities by identifying educational and employment options for juvenile offenders, providing tools and strategies to facilitate their engagement with the formal education and employment sectors, and increasing access to drug treatment services. The project should also increase the services available to victims of juvenile offenders, by adapting the restorative justice framework to address the particular needs of this population, and equip a larger population of Poder Judicial staff to apply restorative techniques and provide continuity to the project by training future staff.

Justice Sector Technical Assistance Program - 0 views

  •  
    The Higher Judicial Council (HJC) is the main body charged with improving and reforming the judiciary. However, the HJC admittedly does not have the technical expertise to make these wide-ranging, systemic reforms in the two areas indicated above. The technical expertise from an implementer would provide expert advice and training on how to prosecute and adjudicate complex criminal cases that involve the use of technical evidence and/or evidence derived from modern forensic techniques, especially as they relate to cases involving money laundering, cybercrime, and terrorism. Training, advice, and mentorship are also needed on the development and use of a plea bargaining system and on alternatives to incarceration that are written in the law, but implemented on an ad hoc basis. There are alternatives to incarceration laws on the books, i.e. setting bail and parole for minor misdemeanor cases, however they are either not used or used on an inconsistent basis. There is no law on plea bargaining.

BJA FY 18 Justice Accountability Initiative: National Training and Technical Assistance... - 0 views

  •  
    The Justice Accountability Initiative (JAI) is a data-driven approach that can help state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies analyze, understand, and address reducing recidivism and crime. The overall goal of JAI is to reduce crime by reducing the risk of recidivism, particularly violent recidivism. State and local agencies can accomplish this goal by creating and improving risk prediction tools , needs assessments and supervision plans, and building data-sharing and notification systems across criminal justice stakeholders. These strategies will also save in costs and improve operational efficiencies that can be reinvested in proven strategies to reduce crime and recidivism.
