BJA FY 20 Innovative Prosecution Solutions for Combatting Violent Crime: The purpose of this program is to provide state, local, and tribal prosecutors with information, resources, and training and technical assistance (TTA) to develop effective strategies and programs to address and prosecute individuals who commit violent crime. Throughout the United States local prosecutors' offices carry attorney caseloads well above recommended levels, lack critical support staff, and rely on outdated information technology to manage their caseloads which can have a negative impact on victims, criminal defendants, and public safety. Accordingly, IPS will provide direct funding to prosecutors' offices to address reduce caseloads, improve the effectiveness and efficiency of prosecutors' processes and procedures, and provide modern technology to better manage and track cases. IPS also addresses local prosecutors' offices struggle to effectively adjust to the growing amount of evidence and the subsequent intricacies of the investigation and prosecution of crimes, particularly cyber, human trafficking, gun and drug crimes. IPS supports the use of technology, intelligence, and data analytics in innovative ways that enable prosecutors to focus resources on the people and places associated with high concentrations of criminal activity.
