Examining Criminogenic Risk Levels Among People with Mental Illness Incarcerated in US Jails and Prisons
Research indicates that Native American persons experience crime victimization at higher rates than non-Native people. Furthermore, the unique position of American Indian and Alaska Native tribes as both sovereign nations and domestic dependents of the U.S. creates jurisdictional complexities in responding to crime, justice, and safety.

Communications Assistant Stacy Lee Reynolds hosts.
