B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS)
Community Policing Development (CPD) funds are used to develop the capacity of law enforcement to implement community policing strategies by providing guidance on promising practices through the development and testing of innovative strategies; building knowledge about effective practices and outcomes; and supporting new, creative approaches to preventing crime and promoting safe communities.
With this funding, the COPS Office supports projects that allow for the identification and expansion of promising practices and produces knowledge products that follow the principles of good guidance:
- Quality-driven, with an emphasis on action statements to drive promising practices and reduce variations in performance
- Evidence-based, with recommendations that are consistent with the weight of the best available evidence identified through systematic review
- Accessible, with clear language and manageable lengths that are appropriate and relevant for the law enforcement field
- Memorable, to encourage immediate actions or aid for the complex situations law enforcement professionals face.
In 2023, the COPS Office will provide grants to create or expand the use of crisis intervention teams to embed mental and behavioral health services with law enforcement agencies to better respond to individuals in crisis in the community. These projects will fund activities including overtime for sworn personnel, salaries and contracts for mental health professionals, purchase or lease of nonpatrol vehicles for crisis response programs, and costs associated with training for and equipping personnel. The COPS Office encourages small, rural, tribal, and regional agencies to apply for CIT funding to improve their crisis intervention efforts.
All applicants should also budget for at least one person to attend a national conference addressing this issue. Funded agencies will have the opportunity to participate in an ongoing community of practice with other COPS Office awardees and receive training and technical assistance from the Crisis Intervention Training Provider.
