The BJA Gulf States Regional Law Enforcement Technology Assistance Initiative is an innovative new program designed to provide resources and technology to law enforcement jurisdictions within the five Gulf States (Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas) to assist with information and intelligence sharing to reduce crime and illegal drug trafficking. The grants awarded under this initiative are expected to enhance information and criminal intelligence sharing between local law enforcement agencies and their local fusion centers. Awardees under this initiative should also work toward sharing this type of information with federal and state agencies with the intention to reduce crime.
