On July 28, Vice President Joe Biden announced that the Department of Justice COPS Office has awarded $1 billion in Recovery Act funding through its COPS Hiring Recovery Program (CHRP) to state, local and tribal law enforcement to create and/or preserve nearly 5,000 law enforcement positions.
The COPS Office has prepared a CHRP Announcement Toolkit that provides additional information on how the application was created, reviewed and final awards were selected. Included for your review is the final award list; CHRP applicant rankings by state; state summary sheets that includes the number of agencies that applied and were awarded, dollars requested and awarded, and a list of agencies awarded; frequently asked questions and the methods used to develop and evaluate CHRP applications.
