Abstract: The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority administered 104 grants in 1994. It allocated more than $19 million in Federal funds and $6.3 million in State and local matching funds to 39 programs in 14 program areas in the State's effort to control drug and violent crime and their effects. Funded programs included initiatives in law enforcement, prosecution, defense, adjudication, corrections, crime prevention, treatment, and education. The overall Illinois effort has emphasized four fundamentals in undertaking effective, cost-effective initiatives: coordination, integration, evaluation, and dissemination. Specific activities included multijurisdictional task force programs that integrated Federal, State, and local drug law enforcement agencies and prosecutors; community and neighborhood programs that assisted citizens n preventing and controlling crime; programs that improved the operational effectiveness of law enforcement; career criminal prosecution programs; and financial investigative programs targeting money laundering and assets obtained through illegal drug trafficking.
