"The Office of Justice Programs' (OJP) close partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal justice systems is essential to providing a comprehensive and cohesive response to the nation's public safety needs. OJP provides innovative leadership, critical research and information, and essential funding to help communities implement programs and strategies. The OJP Fiscal Year 2009 Report to Congress is presented in chapters that demonstrate OJP's commitment to outreach and collaboration with the criminal and juvenile justice fields, innovative programs and technology, evidence-based programs and practices, and sound stewardship of the funds entrusted to OJP by Congress and the American people. Each chapter includes highlights and accomplishments funded by fiscal year (FY) 2009 appropriations and by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). Each chapter also provides real world examples that show how OJP programs have made a positive difference in the lives of Americans. Composed of five bureaus and two program offices, OJP and its programs and research address every facet of criminal and juvenile justice. Components include the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), Community Capacity Development Office (CCDO), and the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART)"
