Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $499,981)

The Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Program (LETTAP) employs promising law enforcement innovations and adult learning concepts, based on training needs assessment findings from law enforcement leaders. The findings are used to guide the design, and delivery of an instructional training series, and to identify new trends and new audiences among State, local, and tribal law enforcement professionals and their allied partners. This approach focuses on aiding law enforcement's ability to respond appropriately to juvenile victimization and delinquency by improving collaborative response systems that prevent and control juvenile crime. With this global framework, the project focuses on serious habitual offending, crime, violence, and dysfunction in Indian Country, safety in schools, managing juvenile operations in police agencies, and juvenile interrogation/interviewing.NCA/NCF
