Major Program Proposals: 2008
Enacted
2009
Request
 
1. Violent Crime Reduction Partnership Initiative
Program
$ 0 $ 200,000
    [177,513]
This program will support multi-jurisdictional task forces to help communities that have experienced an increase in violent crime. This program will be administered as a competitive, discretionary grant, which will require communities to establish partnerships with local U.S. Attorneys and federal law enforcement agencies or federal law enforcement task forces in order to obtain maximum leverage of federal resources over local crime problems. This initiative will disrupt criminal gang, firearm and drug activities, particularly those with a multi-jurisidictional dimension.    
     
2. Byrne Public Safety and Protection Program $ 0 $ 200,000
    [177,513]
This new initiative will replace several smaller grant programs, including Project Safe Neighborhoods, drug courts, the cannabis eradication program, the cleanup of methamphetamine labs, DNA backlog grants, and the re-entry program, with a single, flexible, competitive grant program that addresses multiple priorities.    
     
3. Community Policing Development
Program
$ 0 $ 4,000
    [3,503]
The budget proposes to merge the COPS Office into the Office of Justice Programs. Funding for the continuation of the Community Policing Development Program is requested under the State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance appropriation.
