FY 2019 Law Enforcement-Based Victim Specialist Program
This program will develop or enhance crime victim specialist programs within law enforcement agencies to better support victims through the criminal justice process including by connecting them with community-based direct victim services programs to more quickly and more effectively serve them.

Eligible applicants for this opportunity are limited to public law enforcement agencies (including municipal, county, state, and tribal agencies).
