Community Oriented Policing Services

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is a component within the United States Department of Justice. The COPS Office was established through a provision in the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.

Since 1994, the COPS Office has provided $14 billion in assistance to state and local law enforcement agencies to help hire community policing officers. The COPS Office also funds the research and development of guides, tools and training, and provides technical assistance to police departments implementing community policing principles. [1]

Ronald L. Davis is the current Director of the COPS Office.
