Abstract: Designed to provide a congressional update and act as a tool to law enforcement and justice partners as they implement strategies to reduce and prevent crime, this Report to Congress presents some of the most successful crime enforcement and prevention initiatives by State, local, and tribal agencies under the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA’s) Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant program for fiscal year 2005. The report is comprised of three primary sections. The first offers an overview of FY 2005 appropriations for BJA administered programs. BJA’s funding appropriations continue to support and promote the best crime enforcement, reduction, and prevention practices, providing updates to the field through its regional conferences, Web site, publications, and annual report. The second section of the report presents an overview of programs and initiatives in the areas of crime prevention, law enforcement, counterterrorism, adjudication, substance abuse, corrections, and justice information sharing. The third and final section shows how State Administering Agencies (SAAs) and State-level programs and initiatives helped keep America’s communities safer in fiscal year 2005. It includes all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and United States territories. The Bureau of Justice Assistance continues to focus on its priorities, emphasizing local control, building relationships in the field, developing collaborations and partnerships, promoting capacity building through planning, streamlining the administration of grants, increasing training and technical assistance, creating project accountability, encouraging innovation, and communicating the value of justice efforts.
