Since its 1994 inception, the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) — known as the COPS Office — has awarded roughly $14 billion in grants to support the advancement of community policing. These grants have covered a variety of issues, including officer hiring, drug education programs, and law enforcement technologies to advance community policing. This map displays the recipients of COPS Hiring Program (CHP) grant awards from fiscal years 2008 through 2012, including the number of officers each award supported. It also displays the compensation per officer provided by each CHP grant award from fiscal years 2008 through 2012.
