Arizona Criminal Justice Commission (ACJC)

Grants to Arizona criminal justice agencies for efforts to reduce crime and violence throughout the state. Eligible program activities include apprehension, prosecution, forensic support services, adjudication and sentencing, corrections and community corrections, substance abuse treatment, and prevention and education.
Arizona prioritizes the use of these funds to support apprehension efforts, prosecution projects, and projects that reinforce these activities, such as drug adjudication and sentencing, drug forensic analysis activities, and corrections and community corrections projects. In addition, funds may also support substance abuse treatment for corrections-involved individuals, and prevention and education efforts.
Drug, gang, and violent crime enforcement efforts must frequently cross jurisdictional boundaries in order to arrest, prosecute, and sentence criminals. ACJC supports improving the effectiveness of collaborative law enforcement by leveraging state and federal funds to reduce drug trafficking, drug-related violent crime, and criminal street gang activities throughout Arizona. Furthermore, ACJC strongly encourages agencies to coordinate efforts with other projects or initiatives, such as the direct local agency Byrne JAG funds, methamphetamine interdiction, Homeland Security programs, prescription drug abuse initiatives, and High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) activities.
The DGVCC program is designed to implement projects aligned with ACJC’s approved Arizona 2020 Drug, Gang and Violent Crime Control State Strategy. The strategy identifies purpose areas for funding projects designed to address the drug, gang and violent crime problem in the state. These purpose areas are as follows:
