Multi-Level Comprehensive Community Justice Partnerships: Understanding Partnership Dimensions

Shelli Rossman, The Urban Institute

The paper will discuss the key components of a number of comprehensive initiatives, including the SafeFutures program and Cities/Communities in Schools program to illustrate the different types of partnerships between justice agencies and communities. Multi-site comprehensive programs are usually large programs encompassing multiple "mini programs" within the structure. The paper will highlight how the different partnership structures relate to the successes these programs can have in different communities. Barriers to effective partnership formation will also be discussed.
