If you're a state, local, tribal or territorial law enforcement agency then you should explore our funding opportunities. As the leading community policing experts at the U.S. Department of Justice, we've invested over $14 billion in community policing since Congress established our office in 1994.

We invite you to learn about our various grant programs some of which are available to non-law enforcement agencies, read about our current grantees' successes, and plan to apply for funding to support your community policing efforts.
