The FY 2018 BWC Policy and Implementation Program (PIP) directly supports a key priorities of the Department of Justice by promoting the safety of law enforcement officers and citizens. BWCs can provide critical visual and audio records of interactions. A growing body of research findings indicate that the presence of BWCs can reduce the use of force by assisting in the de-escalation of conflicts. Research also suggests that BWCs can have a moderating effect on citizens and can help strengthen accountability and transparency in citizen-police interactions.  Applications are due May 31, 2018.  For more information, visit https://www.bja.gov/BWC18

BJA recognizes that a significant number of these adult offenders are in need of treatment in order to successfully complete their supervision, which in turn will reduce recidivism and promote public safety. Coordination among corrections, substance abuse and mental health treatment providers, correctional health, and parole or probation enables the development of collaborative comprehensive case plans that address criminogenic risk, substance abuse, and mental health needs.

Several years ago, BJA initiated a pilot project, the “Integrated Reentry and Employment Strategies” project to test an innovative approach to reduce recidivism and increase job readiness for offenders returning from incarceration, while integrating best practices in reentry and employment. Building upon the pilot project, the FY 2018 Adult Reentry and Employment Strategic Planning Program will provide funding for strategic planning grants to replicate the framework developed in the pilot project. Applications are due June 18, 2018.  For more information, visit https://www.bja.gov/SCAEMP18
