As required by Title 74, Section 20k of the Oklahoma Statutes, the Attorney General has developed, and is implementing, a grant program for local law enforcement. This new grant program is available for local law enforcement agencies in Oklahoma to increase their capacity to respond to violent crime in their community. As provided for by the law, law enforcement agencies can utilize funds to reduce violent crime through priority strategies such as targeted staffing, increased technology, better analytical capability, enhanced community partnerships or victims services.
For FY 2013 the Oklahoma Legislature appropriated $2 million to the Attorney General for the grant program. Those funds are being received and will be fully appropriated in June 2013 (consistent with fiscal year funding). Once all the funds have been appropriated the Attorney General will begin awarding the grants to local law enforcement agencies. The anticipated date for the awards will be July 2013.
For FY 2014, Attorney General Scott Pruitt has submitted to the Oklahoma Legislature a budget request of an additional $4.2 million to increase the grant program. General Pruitt has personally met with House and Senate leadership and with budget leaders to make this request. General Pruitt remains committed to the implementation of the local law enforcement grant program and hopes that the Legislature will fund his request.
