Excerpt
Excerpt: The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) was created to help America’s state and local governments improve the criminal justice system and to restore security to our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. As part of that effort, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) provides funding, training, and technical assistance to states, local governments, and other justice and prevention agencies. For nearly 20 years, state and local visionaries have worked with OJP and BJA to create forward-thinking solutions to difficult crime problems. Reviewing these successes, I am reminded that the best and most exciting ideas are born not in Washington, D.C., but in our states, our territories, and our communities. It is with this experience in mind that we set out the principles that will guide BJA in the coming years. These principles will help us design our policies, administer our funding sources, and oversee our programs. No principle will be more important to us than providing for state and local control. President George W. Bush set out this principle well when he said that his vision is an “active but limited government: one that empowers states, cities, and citizens to make decisions.” This plan is a good beginning, but it is not a measure of success. What matters is not making promises, but making good on promises. To make sure that you are able to hold us accountable, BJA will publish an annual report that outlines our progress.
