Annotation: This “Fact Sheet” explains and provides examples of how the resources of the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS office) can be used under the Coordinated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS), which DOJ launched in 2010 to improve the flexibility of its grant process to better serve the criminal justice needs of federally recognized tribes.
Abstract: Under CTAS, tribes and tribal consortia can, for the first time, submit a single application for most of DOJ’s tribal grant programs. CTAS enables tribes and DOJ to have a better understanding of the tribes’ overall public safety needs. CTAS is not a program, but is rather an overarching structure under which 10 separate grant program applications are submitted. The COPS Office administers one of the 10 grant programs. It pertains to “Public Safety and Community Policing.” This program focuses on expanding the implementation of community policing in tribal communities and addressing the most serious needs of law enforcement through a comprehensive program. Some areas addressed by the COPS program are salaries and fringe benefits for newly hired or re-hired full-time sworn officers, overtime pay for officers engaged in community policing activities, equipment for police, technology upgrades in policing, police training, travel costs for training activities, and funding for anti-methamphetamine/anti-opioid activities.
