03-06-2018 05:24 PM

On April 10-11, 2017, the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA) and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association (NLADA) hosted a joint meeting that brought together four chief defenders and four prosecutors from across the country who are participating in the Safety and Justice Challenge (SJC). The prosecutors and defenders from four SJC sites made group presentations on how they were collaborating to achieve SJC goals and implementing corresponding changes in their respective offices. The goal of the meeting was to share information regarding effective collaboration strategies and develop new ideas on how to best leverage the respective roles and expertise of defenders and prosecutors to address systemic issues that contribute to jail incarceration. As a result of those meetings, APA and NLADA were able to craft this joint paper with recommendations aimed at promoting and improving successful collaborations between prosecutors and defenders.
