Community Policing Development (CPD) funds are used to develop the capacity of law enforcement to implement community policing strategies by providing guidance on promising practices through the development and testing of innovative strategies; building knowledge about effective practices and outcomes; and supporting new, creative approaches to preventing crime and promoting safe communities.
The FY 2023 Critical Topics CPD program will fund projects that will convene stakeholders around the most critical issues in public safety facing our nation and develop guides and resources, reports, best practices, and other information products for the field that highlight successful community policing strategies in the areas of recruitment, retention, workforce diversification, tolerance, diversity and anti-bias.
The FY 2023 Critical Topics CPD program has one open solicitation with the following subtopics:
-Emerging Issues Forums
-Innovations in Recruitment, Retention, and Workforce Diversification
-Tolerance, Diversity, and Anti-Bias Training
