Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $750,000)

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) supports law enforcement, courts, corrections, treatment, technology, and prevention initiatives that strengthen the nation's criminal justice system. BJA's training and technical assistance (TTA) strategy includes three overall functions: providing comprehensive technical assistance and training to grantees and practitioners who are implementing BJA demonstration programs to support replication of the program model; creating and facilitating effective training opportunities for criminal justice practitioners to increase their knowledge of emerging technology, best practices, or new models of service; and assisting state and local jurisdictions and criminal justice agencies as they define operational or programmatic challenges through assessment, planning, and implementation support.

The Fox Valley Technical College will facilitate and manage the delivery of training and technical assistance services to BJA customers; assess criminal justice practitioner needs and offer effective solutions; and provide information and resources to BJA and the criminal justice community in order to enhance knowledge of criminal justice practitioners, improve their capacity to problem solve, and increase information disseminated to the field.
