BJA supports programs and initiatives in the areas of law enforcement, justice information sharing, countering terrorism, managing offenders, combating drug crime and abuse, adjudication, advancing tribal justice, crime prevention, protecting vulnerable populations, and capacity building.
The SPI initiative is a collaborative effort among BJA, national training and technical assistance partners, state/local law enforcement agencies, and researchers, designed to assist agencies with identifying innovative and evidence-based solutions to effectively and efficiently tackle chronic crime problems.
Through this program, BJA and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services offer grants to improve security within our Nation's schools and on school grounds through evidence-based programs.
The TCCLA goals are to enhance the operations of tribal justice systems and improve access to those systems; and provide training and technical assistance for development and enhancement of tribal justice systems.
TJSIP assists tribes in developing effective strategies to cost effectively renovate, expand, or replace existing facilities associated with the incarceration and rehabilitation of juvenile and adult offenders subject to tribal jurisdiction.
This program is committed to protecting the integrity of the criminal justice system and the consistent application of due process for all.
VALOR Initiative: Preventing Violence Against Law Enforcement Officers and Ensuring Officer Resilience and Survivability
VALOR is designed to prevent violence against law enforcement officers and ensure officer resilience and survivability following violent encounters during the course of their duties.
VOI/TIS grant funds allowed states to build or expand correctional facilities to increase the bed capacity for the confinement of persons convicted of Part 1 violent crimes or adjudicated delinquents for an act that, if committed by an adult, would be a Part 1 violent crime.
