  Annotation: This annual report presents the activities of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) for fiscal year 2003 through 2004.
Abstract: OJP’s mission, vision, and organization are described. OJP’s mission is to “provide federal leadership in developing the Nation’s capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist crime victims.” OJP is organized into a number of bureaus and program offices, among them are the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), and the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC). The programs and initiatives undertaken by the OJP and its bureaus and program offices are reviewed; they fall under the topic areas of: (1) law enforcement; (2) community-based programs; (3) corrections/managing offenders; (4) juvenile justice; (5) victims of crime; (6) substance abuse and crime; (7) terrorism and domestic preparedness; (8) technology to fight crime; and (9) data collection and statistics. For example, community-based programs initiated or supported by the OJP during fiscal year 2003 included Project Sentry and the Reducing Community Gun Violence Program, which received funding from OJP totaling $60 million during 2003. Programs focusing on substance abuse and crime included the BJA administered Indian Alcohol Substance Abuse Program that strives to reduce crimes associated with the distribution and use of alcohol and controlled substances in tribal communities. In terms of developing and supporting technology to fight crime, BJA’s Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) Program supports Federal, State, and local law enforcement collaboration across jurisdictions and provides a broad range of information exchange technology and criminal investigation support. In an effort to support victims of crime, the OVC awarded $351 million in 2003 and 2004 to support victim compensation programs in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the 2 U.S. territories. Appendixes list fiscal year 2003 and 2004 awards.
