Strengthening Corrections Institutions in Liberia

In 2019, the ABA ROLI launched the Strengthening Corrections Institutions in Liberia project that builds on ABA ROLI's presence in Liberia and its current work supporting criminal justice actors in Liberia. The project aims to improve the operational capacity and efficiency of the Liberian Bureau of Corrections and Rehabilitation (BCR) so that corrections institutions demonstrate improved adherence to standardized procedures, best practices, and human rights in the operation of corrections facilities. The project focuses on putting in place a functional, streamlined, and up to date case file system that results in clear, usable, and accurate data on correction facilities' population and their status. ABA ROLI further supports BCR in revising and upgrading its standard operating procedures and providing training and technical advice to BCR personnel.
