Dept. of Justice - COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP). Deadline: 5/25/22. $15M Available.
COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP)
The goal of CAMP is to provide funding to State law enforcement agencies in states with high seizures of precursor chemicals, finished methamphetamine, laboratories, and laboratory dump seizures for the purpose of locating or investigating illicit activities, such as precursor diversion, laboratories, or methamphetamine traffickers. By providing funding for additional law enforcement, civilian, prosecutors, and task force personnel, training, and equipment, the program seeks to increase the number of hours devoted to statewide task forces, increase the number and variety of agencies participating in task forces, and enhance the analytical capability of task forces. Anticipated outcomes of CAMP awards include: increased collaboration with federal agencies; increased analytical reporting; increased information sharing among participating agencies; increased number and efficiency of investigations; increased percentage of investigations resulting in arrests, referrals, prosecutions, and ultimately convictions; increased knowledge and use of community policing principles; increased number of drug-endangered children identified; and increased number of and size of drug seizures. This is a competitive, discretionary program. The COPS Office is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community.
Eligible applicants are state law enforcement agencies authorized by law or by a state agency to engage in or to supervise anti-methamphetamine investigative activities.
