BJA FY 13 Smart Policing Initiative Training and Technical Assistance Program


The purpose of this FY 2013 competitive grant announcement is to select one provider to deliver, nationwide, a wide range of training and technical assistance (TTA) services to agencies participating in the Smart Policing Initiative (SPI). These services include, but are not limited to, training sessions and educational sessions developed and conducted by relevant subject matter experts, onsite or remote guidance on problem analysis, solution development, policing theory, evaluation methodology, and other matters relevant to the purposes of the SPI program. SPI agencies will leverage this TTA solicited through this competitive grant announcement to implement solutions to chronic crime problems. The results of these efforts will assist law enforcement agencies to enhance the quality and outcomes of their policing efforts. This grant announcement specifically requests applications for one nationwide TTA assistance provider; it does not solicit applications from individual jurisdictions to request funding from BJA. See the FY 2013 Smart Policing Initiative grant announcement for additional SPI funding opportunities. This program is funded under the Edward Byrne Memorial Competitive Grant Program (Byrne Competitive Program). The Byrne Competitive Program helps local communities improve the functioning and capacity of state and local criminal justice systems and provides for national support efforts including TTA programs strategically targeted to address local needs.
