NCCJD's Pathways to Justice Training Program
Five chapters of The Arc were selected to pilot implementation of The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability’s “Pathways to Justice” Training Program. Through this program, funded by BJA, chapters will help build the capacity of the criminal justice system to effectively identify, serve, and protect people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, many of whom have “mild” disabilities that often go unnoticed among criminal justice professionals without appropriate training.
