Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $149,999)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Competitive Program: National Initiatives, administered by the Office of Justice Programs' Bureau of Justice Assistance, furthers the Department's mission by assisting state and local jurisdictions in improving the criminal justice system and assisting communities in preventing drug abuse and crime. In FY 2008, the program will focus on funding local, regional, and national efforts within five major categories: 1) preventing crime and drug abuse; 2) enhancing local law enforcement; 3) enhancing local courts; 4) enhancing local corrections and offender reentry; and 5) facilitating justice information sharing.

The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) will implement a project under category 1: preventing crime and drug abuse. NCPC will reduce campus crime by increasing the knowledge of crime prevention techniques, practices, and policies for campus law enforcement executives and campus administrators. They will address the need for additional knowledge of campus crime prevention and its effectiveness; the need for support from college administrators and law enforcement for crime prevention programs, policies, and practices; and establish campus crime prevention success within individual colleges and universities. NCPC will also develop a two-day advanced campus crime prevention course, which includes a half-day summit, specifically tailored for campus administrators and law enforcement executives. The course will provide tools and information on how to analyze anticipatory risk assessment data for use at the onset of the problem-solving process.
