16. Other OJP Offices

OJP's American Indian and Alaskan Native Desk (AI/AN) works to improve outreach to these communities. AI/AN works to enhance OJP's response to tribes by coordinating funding, training, and technical assistance and providing information about available OJP resources.

The Executive Office for Weed and Seed (EOWS) also is within OJP. EOWS is dedicated to building stronger, safer communities through the Weed and Seed strategy, a community-based, multi-disciplinary approach to combating crime. EOWS works closely with U. S. Attorneys to implement Operation Weed and Seed in communities throughout the country.

Six offices within OJP provide agency-wide administrative and/or financial management support. They are the Office of Congressional and Public Affairs (OCPA), the Office of General Counsel (OGC), the Office of Personnel (OP), the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the Office of Budget and Management Services (OBMS), and the Office of the Comptroller (OC).
