- $415 million for state and local law enforcement grants (probably the Byrne grant program administered by the Governor)
- $148 million cut from juvenile justice program grants
- $296 million cut from the COPS program that pays for local agencies to hire officers without paying for them for the first three years.
- $133 million in construction projects by the FBI.
- $120 million cut from "Justice Information Sharing Technology"*
- $106 million cut for "Tactical Law Enforcement Wireless Communication"
- $15 million cut from the Washington, D.C. Forensics Lab
- $10 million cut from the National Drug Intelligence Center
*All figures represent reductions from FY 2010 levels except spending for "Justice Information Sharing Technology," most of which was scheduled to be spent in FY 2011.These are cuts in the current fiscal year, meaning grants and other federal law enforcement funds previously thought to be available may now be thrown into question. Presumably all these cuts came from the Republican side of the aisle, since they were the ones pushing for reductions. Ever since Texas abolished its system of Tulia-style drug task forces, Byrne grants through the Goveror's office have made up a significant portion of Texas' extra border security funds over the years, and the juvenile justice and COPS reductions will also affect Texas locals in the jurisdictions where cities or counties have received those grants. Also, though it's a relatively small cut, given all the craziness involving Mexican drug cartels it surprises me to see $10 million slashed from the National Drug Intelligence Center. Interesting list.
