Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Program

Training & Technical Assistance

The Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Hate Crimes Enforcement and Prevention Initiative is charged with coordinating DOJ’s efforts to eradicate hate crimes in part by facilitating training, outreach, and education to law enforcement agencies and the public at the federal, state, local, and tribal levels. This work is collaborative and includes DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, the Community Relations Service, U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, and other program offices within the Office of Justice Programs.

For more information on the work of these agencies and opportunities to build on this work, visit the DOJ Hate Crimes site.
