Embracing Growth and Change to Build Stronger Communities

The Bureau of Justice Assistance National Training and Technical Assistance Center (BJA NTTAC) builds safer and stronger communities through proactive, responsive, and innovative training and technical assistance. BJA NTTAC has adopted new branding to reflect the growth and change in the landscape of community safety. While NTTAC branding is changing, the commitment to supporting organizations and strengthening communities is not.

Building safer and stronger communities is not a static, one-size-fits-all effort, but rather a dynamic mission grounded in evidence-based practice and ongoing evaluation and improvement.  As the needs of communities evolve, BJA NTTAC and our nationwide provider network consistently evaluate trends in community safety to best provide critical training and technical assistance. BJA NTTAC’s new branding is intended to reflect these themes of elevating practice, learning and education, and collaboration.   

Community-based programs, grassroots initiatives, reentry programs, and tribal justice organizations are all essential contributors to the broader goal of creating safer and healthier communities across the entire criminal justice system. Collaboration between these diverse entities, many with long histories of public engagement, and system-based criminal justice agencies can lead to more effective and sustainable solutions for building thriving communities.  

The new BJA NTTAC logo is intended to reflect this perspective shift regarding community safety. The logo depicts overlapping leaves which form a sunburst, representing partnership and connection.  The leaf shapes connote growth and collaboration, which are necessary components of achieving stronger and safer communities. BJA NTTAC is excited to introduce branding that aligns more closely with our mission and the evolving public safety landscape. 

Any organization actively working towards building safer and stronger communities is eligible to request free training and technical assistance from BJA NTTAC. We look forward to working with you!
