Contracts for services to USA nonprofits, for-profits, and IHEs to develop and enhance the capacity of local law enforcement agencies in addressing violent crime. Funding is also intended for national symposiums to educate and train law enforcement on evidence-based programs.
The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP or the “Partnership”), administered by BJA, is designed to enhance the capacity of state, tribal, and local law enforcement and prosecutors in jurisdictions experiencing a precipitous increase in violent crime to enhance public safety by introducing a new framework of federal/local collaboration. For participating sites, it is a three-year engagement that provides expedited delivery of DOJ resources and coordinated training and technical assistance (TTA) in seven core areas: illegal gun violence, federal partnerships, crime analysis, technology, criminal justice collaboration, investigations, and community engagement.
For FY 2019, BJA is seeking two TTA providers who will work collaboratively to develop PSP TTA services and support their delivery to participating cities, which will leverage the TTA to implement solutions to their chronic violent crime problems. One of the providers will work with PSP sites to conduct strategic assessments and to identify TTA needs and respond to TTA requests. The other provider will support PSP infrastructure through the coordination of weekly PSP meetings, maintenance of PSP dashboards, website and online clearinghouse, as well as coordination of PSP symposiums and peer-to-peer exchanges.
Selected providers are expected to provide combined TTA services that include, but are not limited to, coordination of federal resources, training sessions and educational sessions developed and conducted by subject matter experts, onsite or remote guidance on violent crime reduction strategies, peer-to-peer visits, partnerships, strategic planning, crime analysis and research implementation, outreach, accountability and data-driven efforts, and other innovative approaches that empower PSP sites’ capacity.
The two TTA categories described above designate two distinct sets of activities intended to result in the provision of targeted customized TTA to existing and prospective cities selected to participate in PSP in the implementation of data- and analysis-driven law enforcement, crime prevention, and applied research strategies. Applicants must clearly designate under which category they are applying. Applicants may submit applications for one or both of the categories listed below; however, if an applicant chooses to apply for funding in both categories, two unique applications must be submitted. Applicants must clearly indicate on the front page of the Program Abstract and Program Narrative the category or categories for which they are applying.
