Annotation: This Annual Report of the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) for fiscal year 2000 provides data and information on organization and activities related to its mission, which is to provide Federal leadership in developing the Nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist crime victims.
Abstract: The first section of the report reviews OJP's mission, goals, and organization. In fiscal year 1999, Congress directed OJP and the Justice Department to develop a plan for a new organizational structure for OJP that would explore the consolidation and streamlining of agency programs and activities. During FY 2000, much progress was made, as OJP continued to refine the reorganization plan and began preparing for its implementation. OJP developed several new initiatives in FY 2000. The Justice Department's National Institute of Justice, along with the Office of National Drug Control Policy, presented the Methamphetamine Interagency Task Force Final Report, whose findings will further enable local communities to counter methamphetamine use and its effects. OJP improved its use of technology designed to assist local law enforcement and corrections personnel. FY 2000 was the first year the Justice Department was able to implement the Crime Identification Technology Act, which funds information systems and identification technologies that enhance local authorities' ability to reduce and prevent crime. OJP awarded grants to counter Internet crimes against children under its Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program. OJP continued to make more applications for its grant programs available online, including the Bulletproof Vest Program, Local Law Enforcement Block Grant Program, Executive Office of Weed and Seed grants, Drug Courts Implementation grants, equipment grants to support first responders in preparation for a domestic terrorism event, Residential Substance Abuse and Treatment Program, and violence against women grant programs. Throughout the report, there are lists of publications that provide additional information on specific issues.
