Local Law Enforcement Block Grants (LLEBG)

Program Title 
Local Law Enforcement Block Grants Program (LLEBG)
Program Description 
Federal grant funds are made available to cities and counties to support law enforcement agencies through the hiring of officers, paying officer overtime, purchasing law enforcement equipment, enhancing school security, drug courts, adjudication of violent offenders, multijurisdictional task forces, crime prevention, and indemnification insurance. Grant funds processed through the State support small cities and counties that do not receive direct grants for the same purposes from the Department of Justice. 
Source of Funding 
U. S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance 
Eligible Program Participants 
Funds from this program are directed toward reducing violent crime. For all cities and counties that report Part 1 violent crimes to the ACIC using the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), a three-year average is developed. Cities and counties that do not receive direct federal grants are eligible for state processed grants based on their average of reported violent crimes. 
Method of Notification 
When a violent crimes ranking is completed, and a standard subgrant amount is determined, cities and counties are determined eligible for grants based on their violent crimes average. Entities are selected until all grant funds are used. Cities and counties that are determined eligible for these block grants are notified by mail on the process they use to accept the funds.
