Addressing Responsivity Issues with Criminal Justice-Involved Native Americans

Volume 78 Number 2
September 2014

The authors describe how probation and parole officers are ensuring that they address responsivity factors of Native American (NA) youth or adults on their caseloads throughout the supervision process. Since there are few NA-specific studies on responsivity, the authors discuss what is needed to expand knowledge in this area along with selected findings from a survey of probation and parole officers conducted by the American Probation & Parole Association (APPA) and the American Indian Development Associates, LLC (AIDA).
