To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local, and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process to be eligible for FY 2021 DOJ discretionary grant funding.
To become certified, the law enforcement agency must meet two mandatory conditions: (1) the agency’s use of force policies adhere to all applicable federal, state, and local laws; and (2) the agency’s use of force policies prohibit chokeholds except in situations where use of deadly force is allowed by law.
The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward.
For detailed information on this new certification requirement, please visit https://cops.usdoj.gov/SafePolicingEO to access the Standards for Certification on Safe Policing for Safe Communities, Implementation Fact Sheet, and List of Designated Independent Credentialing Bodies.
All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.Full Opportunity Web Address:https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/funding/fy2021/O-OJJDP-2021-47009Contact: Agency Email Description:
