  Annotation: This CD contains the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Annual Report to Congress for Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 and provides an overview of BJA’s activities for the year, descriptions of programs funded in FY 2005, and State-by-State descriptions of successful BJA-funded projects.
  Abstract: The BJA was created in 1984 for the purpose of strengthening the Nation’s criminal justice system and helping tribal, local, and State governments reduce violence and restore security to their communities. In FY 2005, BJA continued to serve as one of the Nation’s premier resources for justice assistance. BJA priorities for FY 2005 were to emphasize local control, build relationships in the field, develop collaborations and partnerships, promote capacity building through planning, and streamline the administration of grants. It also focused on increasing training and technical assistance, creating project accountability, encouraging innovation, and communicating the value of justice efforts. In FY 2005, BJA appropriated $71 million to foster crime prevention programs and initiatives. The funded crime prevention programs are described in this report. A total of $807 million was appropriated for the support of law enforcement programs and initiatives as well as justice services. Funded programs are described. BJA appropriated $19 million for the development and enhancement of counterterrorism programs and initiatives. These funded programs are also described. Other program areas funded and described were in the areas of adjudication ($64 million), substance abuse initiatives ($104 million), corrections ($369 million), and justice information sharing ($77 million). Achievements in each State’s BJA-funded programs and initiatives are described in the concluding section of the report.
