February 19, 2019

On February 19, 2019, the Office of Justice Programs announced an award of $750,000 to the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, Inc., to support attorneys and related criminal justice professionals who investigate and prosecute child abuse cases. The award, provided through OJJDP's Victims of Child Abuse Training and Technical Assistance for Child Abuse Prosecutors program, will help increase public safety through aggressive prosecution of those who abuse or exploit children. "Protecting youth and increasing safety in our communities are central to OJJDP's work," said OJJDP Administrator Caren Harp. "Public safety depends on having investigators and prosecutors who are equipped to stop criminals who would do harm to our children."
