TTA Today Blog

Welcome to BJA NTTAC's TTA Today blog! TTA Today posts tell the story of training and technical assistance (TTA) engagements through individual perspectives, including those of DOJ and BJA leaders, staff, technical assistance providers, subject matter experts, community members, and other relevant stakeholders. These posts serve as an informal venue to share relevant updates or best practices from the criminal justice community, as well as to feature first-hand accounts of how TTA impacts state, local, and tribal communities across the nation.

Losing even one life to officer suicide is too many. To address this important issue, the Bureau of Justice Assistance created the National Consortium on Preventing Law Enforcement Suicide.

The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP), established in 2017, provides federal support through the U.S. Department of Justice to tribal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutors to help reduce violent crime. PSP sites participate in a three-year program and receive tailored support and training and technical assistance opportunities. PSP recently released their annual report highlighting 21 sites participating in the program, 5 of which graduated from the program and 10 of which were added to the program in 2019.
