Grants to Nevada government agencies and tribes for a range of initiatives to reduce drug trafficking and violent crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations can take several weeks. Funding is intended to strengthen the criminal justice system by providing additional resources and facilitating inter-agency communication.
OCJA’s mission is to assist stakeholders with funding to facilitate criminal justice solutions designed to reduce drug and violent crime for safer Nevada communities. With the FY21 JAG funding OCJA intends to provide JAG grant resources to projects with a high probability of improving the performance of the criminal justice system and increase Nevada’s capacity to prevent and reduce violent crime, illegal drug sales and distribution, gang activity and human trafficking. Projects funded with the JAG program will enhance the rule of law by strengthening court programs, prosecution, defense, reentry programs, and system improvements for criminal justice with technology across the state. OCJA proposes to use JAG grant funds for those projects that address issues most critical to Nevada’s criminal justice system.
JAG funds awarded under this FY 2022 solicitation may be used to:
Reduce Violent Crime: Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Uniform Crime Report (UCR) Crime in the United States publications for 2020 and 2021 are not yet available, there are other indicators to suggest that certain types of violent crime increased in many areas. According to an analysis of 27 cities conducted by the Council on Criminal Justice, incidents of homicide increased 5 percent over 2020, which had already seen a 44 percent increase in homicides over 2019. Also, preliminary data compiled by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) indicates that as of December 31, 2021, 458 federal, state, tribal, and local law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2021. This is an increase of 55 percent from the 295 officers killed during the same period in 2020 and is the highest total line-of-duty officer deaths since 1930 when there were 312 fatalities. In addition, the past year has seen an unprecedented increase in threats of violence against Americans who administer the election process in the country.
Crime Analysis and Investigation: With the recent increases in violent crime, crime analysis and investigations have become increasingly vital. Law enforcement agencies that have robust analysis capabilities are better able to focus their limited resources in ways that directly improve public safety while protecting the rights of civilians. According to the International Association of Crime Analysts (IACA), “Crime analysis is both a profession and a set of techniques.” The professionals who perform crime analysis, and the techniques they use, are dedicated to helping law enforcement agencies become more effective through the use of relevant metrics, information, and analytical practices.
