This annual report to Congress summarizes the funding and technical assistance the Bureau of Justice Assistance has provided to State and local law enforcement during fiscal year 2001.
Section one of this annual report to Congress explains that the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) was founded to assist communities in the development of strategies to reduce crime in neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. During 2001 a large array of initiatives were supported by BJA toward these goals. This report summarizes the programs that were funded or received technical assistance from BJA. Section two details specific programs that helped deter gun violence, terrorism, hate crimes, violence in rural areas, money laundering, methamphetamine investigation and clean-up, information technology, and community-based crime prevention and prosecution programs. More specifically, BJA provided funding and technical assistance to Utah in order to help protect athletes, spectators, dignitaries, and media representatives during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. BJA also supported the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training Program, which trains officers and investigators in the detection, investigation, and prosecution of terrorism. The appendices of this report contain information regarding the awards of specific grants, such as the Byrne Grant Program and the Local Law Enforcement Grant Program. A table is provided that lists the BJA awards to States and U.S. territories.
