Delaware Gets Funding for Criminal Justice

Criminal justice majors are in demand as our country is continually trying to keep up with states need for improved crime control. The state of Delaware announced that it had received funds from the recovery act to help fund necessary program in the state.

More than $6.6 million in funding for the CJC is being made available through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program. This federal grant was first announced by Attorney General Eric Holder in March which allows states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and improve the criminal justice system. Some $2 billion in federal funds were made available to state and local officials in the JAG Program, where approximately 60 percent of the funds will go to the state and 40 percent will go directly to local agencies of the law.

New Castle County Executive Chris Coons and Delaware Criminal Justice Council (CJC) Executive Director Jim Kane joined the list of state and federal officials at the New Castle County Police Headquarters where the money will be used to jump-start the state's five-year crime control and prevention strategy. The funds will also help preserve and create law enforcement and public safety jobs across Delaware, as well as fund innovative new projects and much-needed equipment upgrades.

Student who choose to earn their criminal justice degree will have better than average job prospects for years to come. Crime will always be an issue that needs to be addressed, so there will always be a need for qualified personnel who are trained in criminal justice.
