FY 2018 Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Funding Opportunities for State, Local, and Tribal Agencies and TTA Providers

This webinar will introduce the fiscal year 2018 funding opportunities offered through two solicitations, including a new grant program that provides direct assistance for state, local, and tribal justice agencies and jurisdictions to develop, implement, and test data-driven and evidence-based responses to high-cost drivers of crime and other compelling public safety challenges. The presenters will also discuss the related funding opportunity available to training and technical assistance providers.

To the Cloud! Get the Evidence You Need to Move Cases Forward

Some of the most important sources of evidence in a criminal investigation are also the hardest to get. An encrypted, password-protected mobile device can be useless if you have no way to get the password. Social media providers are infamous for their red tape, delaying your returns for weeks or even months. And, if you’re in a country other than where the provider is located, mutual legal assistance treaties can take years to process. Fortunately, there is a solution: obtain the evidence directly from cloud-based user accounts.

During the webinar, participants will review the website and learn about the many valuable resources that can be utilized.
