DEFINITION: Progress Reports are survey instruments that the COPS Office uses to monitor grants. Progress Reports request information about the status of the grant in terms of selection, hiring and training; characteristics of the officers hired; descriptions of officer activities; and general information about the department. The MORE Program requires submission of one MORE Progress Report detailing background information on the department, equipment and technology purchasing and any information on civilian hiring.
COMPLIANCE: The COPS Office monitors the timely and accurate submission of Progress Reports. Funds may be suspended if COPS monitoring and follow-up efforts do not result in the timely submission of these reports.
