"A coordinated community response involves increased information sharing, communication and coordination among criminal justice agencies and community-based social services."

Domestic Violence Courts, Center for Court Innovation

Judicial Notes:

Information sharing in Community Collaborative Response Systems often requires a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to be developed between partner agencies. In therapeutic court models defendants tend to be diverted into a court with a legal carrot, implicitly or explicitly accepting information sharing practices which are not traditionally recognized in general courts. However, in Due Process Non-Ex Parte courts, information sharing may be limited. In general information sharing in a traditional court unconnected with a CCR may only occur at judicial reviews where the court can receive compliance information.
