"This Annual Report provides an overview of many of the projects undertaken by the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) in an effort to fulfill the vision of providing unparalleled resources to the justice community. The report is required pursuant to sections 102(b) and 810 of Public Law 90-351, the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 [42 U.S.C. 3712(b), 3789e]. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2007, in the absence of earmarks, OJP administered additional discretionary funding. OJP draws on a wealth of knowledge supported by research and many years of staff experience to ensure that the funds allocated by Congress reach those programs most able to meet the needs identified by OJP. OJP employees collaborate extensively with criminal justice organizations to facilitate further progress in the criminal justice field. Significant efforts are made to disseminate information on promising practices and proven approaches to increasing safety across the country. The information contained in this report provides an accounting of many of these efforts to lead and support criminal justice programming around the country. Several OJP bureaus also submit Annual Reports to Congress that cumulatively provide a more comprehensive look at OJP programming. Therefore, this report does not attempt to include all OJP programs."
