Community Policing Awards

The U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch has just announced more than $107 million in grant funding through the Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Cops Hiring Program (CHP) to nearly 200 law enforcement agencies nationwide. CHP provides funding directly to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to hire and rehire entry-level career law enforcement officers in an effort to create and preserve jobs and increase community policing capacity and crime prevention efforts. Lynch said the awards “will promote the ongoing efforts of the Department of Justice as we work to build the safe, secure, and supportive communities that every American deserves.” Click here for more information on the awards.
