Children of Incarcerated Parents: Arrest Through Pre-Adjudication


The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for an 18-month period to begin no later than September 15, 2013. Work under this cooperative agreement will involve the development of a guiding framework document of promising practices regarding children of incarcerated parents. This project will examine the points of the criminal justice continuum from arrest and jail incarceration through the pre-adjudication phase; including: pretrial, release, diversion, guilty adjudication, and reentry from local jails and how each of the decisions made throughout the pre-adjudication phase in the criminal justice system impacts this population. The project will further identify and highlight innovations and promising practices that have shown to positively impact children of incarcerated parents. This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC Community Services Division.
