From the BJS: “Criminal Victimization, 2016”

The Bureau of Justice Statistics has just released Criminal Victimization 2016, which found that 42 percent of violent victimizations were reported to police; and only one in 10 victims/ survivors received victim services following the crime.  The redesign of the National Crime Victimization Survey precludes comparisons of data to previous years. View full report here. View the summary here.

DOJ Online Grants Financial Management Training

The two training courses offered are designed for individuals responsible for the financial administration of discretionary and/or formula grants awarded from federal grant-in-aid programs administered by various bureaus and offices at DOJ, including the: Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), Office on Violence Against Women (OVW).
 
DOJ offers two separate trainings on this website:
–The material covered in Training II applies to DOJ awards made on or after December 26, 2014.
–The material covered in Training I applies to DOJ awards made prior to December 26, 2014.
 
The topics discussed in each Training Course are similar to the ones covered in the 2-day Financial Management seminars hosted by the DOJ Office of the Chief Financial Officer. DOJ is offering this online version of the live seminars to give you, a current award recipient, the ability to complete Federal grants management training from your desktop in place of traveling to the onsite trainings. The only prerequisite for taking this online training is that you must be a direct award recipient with a current grant and/or cooperative agreement as awarded by one of the DOJ bureaus or offices listed.
