The program also seeks to enhance the relationship between law enforcement and youth.
Programs funded under this initiative should be established and sponsored by a local law enforcement agency to:
Programs can include, but are not limited to, police/community events such as “National Night Out,” programs for School Resource Officers to implement within public schools, and partnerships with other community groups such as food pantries, recreational leagues, athletic events, local health departments, The Y, Police Explorers, and The Boys and Girls Club. Community Grant Program funds may also support violence intervention programs established and supported by a local law enforcement agency or another agency of a local government.
