Federal officials have reconfigured the COPS office at DOJ.
Here is current Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III:
“Better training and the more sophisticated policing strategies were key reasons for 20 years of declining crime in America. I believe that continuing to advance our technical sophistication can help us reduce crime once again, and that’s why we’re investing in CRI-TAC,” Sessions said. “Improving access to training for our state and local law enforcement partners will mean better policing and a safer America.”
The amount earmarked for the effort is $7 million dollars- a slight drop off from the kind of support the COPS Office used to provide to local law enforcement.
