The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking applications for the FY 2019 Innovative Prosecution Solutions for Combating Violent Crime program. The purpose of the program is to provide state, local, and tribal prosecutors with information, resources, and training and technical assistance (TTA) to develop effective strategies and programs to address and prosecute individuals who commit violent crimes. Prosecutors are leaders within the criminal justice system and possess an enormous responsibility within the criminal justice system. Accordingly, they are well-positioned to bring the police, community, and local agencies together to combat violent crime in their jurisdictions. The Innovative Prosecution Solutions Program encourages prosecutors to use data in the development of their violent crime strategies and programs. As such, it builds upon analysis-driven, promising practices, and evidence-based prosecution by encouraging state, local, and tribal prosecutorial agencies to develop effective, economical, and innovative responses to crime within their jurisdictions.
Applications are due Tuesday, April 16. Learn more and apply.
