The BJA Gulf States Law Enforcement Technology Initiative provides resources and law enforcement technology to law enforcement jurisdictions within the five Gulf States – Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas – to enhance information and intelligence sharing among them in order to reduce crime and drug trafficking.
This initiative will select a single local government agency with the capacity to develop local law enforcement projects designed to gather, analyze, and disseminate information critical to investigating, reporting, and responding to crimes and suspicious activity within its jurisdiction.
Through the initiative, the successful local law enforcement agency will be able to deploy or sustain a project within their jurisdiction, and to work in conjunction with adjacent jurisdictions where necessary. As a result, it will enhance information and intelligence sharing between local law enforcement agencies, fusion centers, and federal and state agencies.
