Annotation: This is the fiscal year (FY) 2013 Annual Report of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), which provides innovative leadership, critical research and information, and essential funding to assist communities in implementing effective criminal justice programs and strategies.
Abstract: The report documents the use of congressional appropriations to expand OJP’s work in inmate reentry to communities after release, to address children’s exposure to violence, to conduct forensic science research, and to resource other important areas important in the provision of public safety. A specific example of OJP’s enabling services was action by the Federal Interagency Reentry Council in FY 2013 to remove obstacles and expand opportunities for formerly incarcerated citizens who have completed their sentences. In another example, the Attorney General’s Defending Childhood initiative began to implement the recommendations in its December 2012 report by establishing a task force to investigate and solve the travesty of children’s exposure to violence in Indian Country. The OJP continues to emphasize programs that have been proven effective by rigorous scientific research, OJP has also sought to ensure a fair and transparent grant process that includes effective monitoring and oversight. Composed of five bureaus, one program office, and eight business offices, OJP and its programs and research address every facet of criminal and juvenile justice. A table of grant awards is provided.
