The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) announced grants totaling more than $12 million to support data and information sharing across law enforcement agencies.
“These investments will support data collection and data infrastructure development in states across the country, which is critical to understanding and improving the nation’s systems of justice,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Amy L. Solomon.
Among the OJP awards announced is more than $4.5 million under the Bureau of Justice Assistance's Justice Information Sharing Training and Technical Assistance (JIS TTA) Program. The JIS TTA awards will be used to assist state, local, and tribal jurisdictions in reducing crime and improving the functioning of the criminal justice system through more effective information sharing, multiagency collaboration, and implementation of data-driven, evidence-based strategies.
