Program accomplishments...

The Law Enforcement Family Support Program is discovering innovative ways to prevent and treat the negative effects of stress experienced by law enforcement and correctional officers and their families. The program consists, among other development activities, of demonstration and research grants which are periodically awarded to State and local law enforcement and corrections agencies, or organizations (i.e., unions and associations) representing law enforcement and corrections personnel. In fiscal year 2000, fewer grants than expected were awarded due to decrease in innovative proposals from the field of law enforcement and the requirement for rigorous evaluation of all programs. Proposals that were funded focused primarily on programming for the managerial rather than line staff. Two grants were awarded for demonstration and training programs and will impact 571 supervisors and 420 officers and their families. Goals have shifted towards the development of a field test model for fiscal year 2001 to ensure accurate scientific testing of various program components. An external evaluation was selected to assist with the development and evaluation of the field test.
