Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $1,499,999)

The FY 2019 Strategies for Policing Innovation (SPI) Training and Technical Assistance Program purpose is to deliver nationwide, a wide range of training and technical assistance (TTA) services to agencies participating in SPI. These services include, but are not limited to, training sessions and educational sessions developed and conducted by relevant subject matter experts, onsite or remote guidance on problem analysis, solution development, data analysis, policing theory, evaluation methodology, and other matters relevant to the purposes of the SPI Program. SPI agencies will leverage the TTA services to implement solutions to pressing crime problems and law enforcement organizational challenges that hamper their effectiveness. The services provided should enhance the quality and outcomes of SPI projects.

The CNA Corporation will use funds to: provide ongoing TTA (both remote and onsite) to existing and future SPI grantees throughout the duration of their SPI grant awards, including subject experts to support SPI site implementation and evaluation activities, peer to peer exchanges, site visits, and specialized training; plan and execute one national meeting or other educational sessions for existing and other SPI sites during the project period; maintain the SPI website, online newsletter, webinars, and blogging opportunities; provide online resources, materials, and limited assistance (via phone or email) that are available to both SPI sites and the general public regarding SPI, lessons learned and related issues; and create and produce documents and materials that highlight a wide range of SPI site accomplishments and results to be shared across a broad spectrum of audiences.
