Jail Tip Sheets on Justice-Involved Women

A series of eight Jail Tip Sheets on critical topics facing jails were developed by the National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women to facilitate the implementation of gender-informed approaches to women in jail settings. Developed in response to recommendations from participants at the Women in Jails Summit held in October 2014, the tip sheets are:

  1. Being Gender-Responsive and Trauma Informed is Just Good Correctional Practice
  2. Take Steps to be More Trauma Informed
  3. Review Discipline Policies and Practices
  4. Manage Women’s Complex Behaviors
  5. Use Gender Responsive Assessment Tools
  6. Assess Women’s Healthcare Needs
  7. Develop Community Partnerships
  8. Support Women’s Successful Transition and Reentry from Jails
