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 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 capabilities, enhanced community partnerships or victims services.
The FY 2020 grant application period is now closed.
For inquiries on the next grant application, officials are encouraged to contact Marie Schuble at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Safe Oklahoma Grant
Established in 2012, The Attorney General’s Safe Oklahoma Grant Program is funded by an annual appropriation from the state legislature. All local law enforcement agencies and sheriff's offices are eligible for the grant. Grants are made for a one-year period.
The Attorney General’s Safe Oklahoma Grant Program provides local law enforcement agencies and sheriff’s offices with additional resources to address violent crime in the state. The money from the grant helps pay overtime costs for officers, technology upgrades, enhanced analytical capabilities and funds community partnership projects that focus on preventing youth violent crime.
