Request a Grant Writer

Grant to an Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Texas local or tribal government agency to improve information sharing on criminal activity and suspicious behavior in local communities. Funding is intended to enhance technology and resources that allow law enforcement agencies in the Gulf State to increase information sharing on both a local and regional basis.

This initiative will select a single local government agency with the capacity to develop local law enforcement projects designed to gather, analyze, and disseminate information critical to investigating, reporting, and responding to crimes and suspicious activity within its jurisdiction. Through the initiative, the successful local law enforcement agency will be able to deploy or sustain a project within their jurisdiction, and to work in conjunction with adjacent jurisdictions where necessary. As a result, it will enhance information and intelligence sharing between local law enforcement agencies, fusion centers, and federal and state agencies. 

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Improve information and intelligence sharing with adjacent jurisdictions and those throughout the Gulf Shore states
  • Improved law enforcement components and increased participation in this project
  • Ensure technology is responsibly deployed and maintained properly
  • Utilize technology, lessons learned, and promising practices from BJA FY 19 Gulf States Law Enforcement Technology Initiative awards.
