BJA’s National Officer Safety Initiatives Program addresses a priority of the DOJ and through this award program will fund innovative approaches to augment law enforcement safety in three key areas: law enforcement suicide, traffic safety, and a national public awareness and education campaign. The following activities will be accomplished under these awards: 1) the consortium to prevent law enforcement suicide will examine the threats and issues surrounding law enforcement suicide and design recommendations and solutions to address them; 2) the law enforcement traffic safety program will develop a TTA program to address various issues related to law enforcement traffic safety and the causes of law enforcement injuries and deaths; and 3) the Supporting the Blue public awareness campaign will develop and implement a national campaign using all forms of media to educate the public about law enforcement and promote support and positive messaging about our nation’s officers.
