Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $200,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Criminal Justice Institute's (CJI) National Center for Rural Law Enforcement (NCRLE) will use their 2010 Congressionally Recommended funds for the expansion of the Rural Executive Management Institute (REMI). CJI will develop and deliver a REMI-Building Leadership training curriculum for rural law enforcement senior level managers and first-line supervisors. The purpose of the training will be to enhance managerial and leadership capabilities and to equip the participants with skills they need to accomplish the goals and aims of their agencies. This REMI-Building Leadership curriculum will target senior to first-line law enforcement supervisors beginning with participants from the most rural northwestern states such as Idaho, the Dakotas, Wyoming, and Montana.
