Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative for Law Enforcement Agencies
The Bureau of Justice Assistance will provide grants and technical assistance for small law enforcement agencies in rural locations to address the unique challenges these departments face in combating violent crime. One of the program requirements is to utilize strategies and services to mitigate the risk for violent behavior in individuals dealing with mental health and/or substance use disorders, including crisis intervention programs and services.
Required activities include:
- Document the development and implementation of strategies to reduce violent crime
- Measure violent crime outcomes before and after the implementation of the crime reduction strategies
- Document progress in a format that is suitable for sharing within the agency, with outside agencies that might want to adapt the strategy, and with the technical assistance provider
Eligible applicants are agencies serving rural communities, including:
- Sheriff offices serving rural population areas
- Local or county law enforcement agencies serving rural populations
- Tribal law enforcement agencies operating in rural areas or reservations
- County prosecutor offices or functional equivalents serving rural populations
