Description

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) partners with many law enforcement agencies at the state and local levels to combat crime and promote safer neighborhoods. Through formula and discretionary grant programs, training, and technical assistance, OJP works with states, communities, and tribes to guarantee they have the resources necessary to provide effective law enforcement and to ensure the safety of their citizens. OJP assistance to law enforcement is rooted in the belief that federal dollars should support initiatives that work and that are backed by the communities they serve.
