INNOVATING CRIMINAL JUSTICE – EMPOWERING VICTIMS
“Supporting Programs, Serving Our Communities… Making a Difference!”
Welcome to the Law Enforcement Planning Commission (LEPC) official website. LEPC’s website is aimed at providing you with relevant information regarding the work of this office. LEPC serves primarily as an advisory arm and as the State Administering Agency (SAA) for several federal funding programs that focus on the areas of criminal justice, juvenile delinquency and victim services.
These federal funds are distributed to local criminal justice agencies, governmental agencies, non-profits, and faith-based organizations through a grant award process. Criminal justice funding supports proactive and innovative programs and methodologies that enhance territorial crime reduction efforts thereby improving the overall criminal justice system. Juvenile justice resources are geared towards monitoring of juvenile facilities, supporting juvenile programs, as well as the State Advisory Group (SAG) Board. The victim service funding supports victim service providers for the development or enhancement of effective programs that improve the response of criminal justice practitioners and victim advocates and ultimately serves those impacted by crime and violence.
It is our aim for this website to be a trusted source of the grant programs and related information. Visit the Grant Programs link and review the programs that benefit the communities within our beautiful Virgin Islands.
Be sure to check out our Funding Opportunities link for available program funding.
The LEPC team is committed to providing unsurpassed community guidance and support. If you have any questions or comments visit the Contact Us page and reach out to the appropriate staff.
