Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $413,896)

Through the FY 2018 Law Enforcement-Based Direct Victim’s Services and Technical Assistance Program, OVC seeks to support projects that will develop or enhance and sustain direct victim assistance service programs within law enforcement-based systems and better coordinate partnerships with community-based programs to serve the broader needs and rights of all crime victims. Funding under this program will support direct victim assistance service grants to state, tribal, and local law enforcement agencies in small, mid-sized, and large jurisdictions to hire staff to develop new or enhance existing law enforcement-based victim service programs.

With this award, The City of Buckeye Police Department will hire two Victim Advocates that will allow the Department to be able to schedule victim services 5–6 days a week, 12 hours a day. In addition, the Department will be able to reach out to new county and statewide victim service organizations and build new collaborative agreements. The Department will be able to develop the Victim Assistance Program and gradually fund the full Program budget within the Department’s City budget over the next 3 years.
