Criminal Justice Supports

Cuyahoga DD’s forensic liaison unit advances the agency's mission by assisting people with developmental disabilities who become involved in the criminal justice system. This is accomplished by:

  • Early identification of people in the criminal justice system;
  • Consultation throughout court proceedings;
  • Collaboration with individuals, interdisciplinary teams, judges, attorneys, and probation officers;
  • Facilitating successful outcomes in parole and/or probation; and
  • Re-entry linkages with community-based services.
