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.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is accepting applications for the National Public Safety Partnership (PSP). PSP serves as a U.S. DOJ-wide initiative that enables cities experiencing high rates of violent crime to partner with DOJ and to receive intensive, coordinated training and technical assistance (TTA) from DOJ to support and enhance public safety and community violence intervention (CVI) strategies.

The National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) recently launched The NCJA Podcast, which is supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance. The podcast series “will explore promising practices, provide guidance on strategic planning, and discuss the fundamentals of the Byrne Justice Assistance (Byrne JAG) program.” New episodes will be regularly released and will focus on the important Byrne JAG-funded work happening in various states across the nation to address crime.
