PAR-18-479: Detecting and Preventing Suicide Behavior, Ideation and Self-Harm in Youth ... - 0 views

  •  
    This initiative supports research to test the effectiveness of combined strategies to both detect and intervene to reduce the risk of suicide behavior, suicide ideation, and non-suicidal self-harm (NSSI) by youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. Opportunities for detection and prevention start at early points of contact (e.g., police interaction, the intake interview) and continue through many juvenile justice settings (e.g., pre-trial detention, juvenile or family court activities, court disposition, placement and on-going care in either residential or multiple community settings.) This FOA invites intervention strategies that are designed to be delivered in typical service settings using typically available personnel and resources, to enhance the implementation of interventions that prove effective, enhance their future uptake in diverse settings, and thereby reduce risk of suicide and self-harm in this population.

FY 2017 National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X-State) Implementation Assistance Prog... - 0 views

  •  
    The National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative is part of a national movement to expand the number of law enforcement (LE) agencies reporting crime data to the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). NCS-X seeks to transition a select sample of 400 LE agencies from across the country, including all of the largest agencies, to NIBRS, in order to use NIBRS data to generate national crime statistics. Under this funding announcement, BJS, in partnership with the FBI, seeks applications for funding to enable small and medium local LE agencies in the NCS-X sampleâ€Â"those agencies with fewer than 750 or more sworn officers that are currently not reporting incident-based data to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Programâ€Â"to report crime data to the FBI’s NIBRS, either through their state UCR Program or directly to the FBI. Enhancing the ability of LE agencies in the nation to submit incident-based data to their state UCR Program or to the FBI directly is an effort jointly supported by BJS and the FBI.

2017 NCS-X Implementation Assistance Program: Phase IV - Support for State Programs - 0 views

  •  
    The National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative is part of a national movement to expand the number of law enforcement (LE) agencies reporting crime data to the FBI™s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). NCS-X seeks to transition a select sample of 400 LE agencies from across the country, including all of the largest agencies, to NIBRS, in order to use NIBRS data to generate national crime statistics. Under this funding announcement, BJS, in partnership with the FBI, seeks proposals from state Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Programs to expand the state™s capacity to report data to NIBRS. The typical mechanism by which a local agency contributes data to NIBRS is through its state pipeline, where agencies report their crime data to the NIBRS-certified UCR Program in their respective state, and the state Program sends data from all of the state™s contributing agencies to the FBI. Transitioning local agencies to NIBRS reporting requires the state pipeline to be enhanced, to ensure state UCR Programs are capable of receiving and processing local incident-based crime data. Funding under this solicitation will support that effort

OJJDP FY 2017 Second Chance Act: Implementing County and Statewide Plans To Improve Out... - 0 views

  •  
    ection 101 of the Second Chance Act authorizes the Department of Justice to award grants to counties and states to improve reentry outcomes for incarcerated youth. The Second Chance Act Program supports counties and states in refining and implementing improved collaborative strategies to address the challenges that reentry and recidivism reduction pose. Implementing a cooperative and wide-ranging plan for reducing recidivism is challenging for even the most sophisticated juvenile justice agencies and requires an intensive systemwide realignment to address gaps in programs and services to improve outcomes for youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. This program will provide grants to support counties and states that have developed a recidivism reduction plan to better align juvenile justice policy, practice, and resource allocation with what research shows works to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. OJJDP expects that a committee, task force, or working group will designate an agency to act as the legal applicant for this grant program. This solicitation will support counties and states that illustrate their readiness to implement a planning strategy developed and coordinated among multiple systems, to track implementation progress, and to show progress toward sustainable changes.

Encouraging Innovation: Field-Initiated Programs Concept Paper - 0 views

  •  
    The program is targeted to receive application from organizations to develop and implement new and innovative strategies that better enable local criminal justice systems to prevent and respond to emerging and chronic crime problems that affect many communities in the United States. Proposals will be aimed at addressing a gap in the current base of knowledge about responding to and or preventing crime and be developed or implemented in a way that allows other communities or organizations to learn from and potentially replicate the approach. Applications must be either innovative and or strategic in nature.
