Criminal Justice is one of those public policy areas that is primarily the responsibility of local governments. Since criminals don't always respect jurisdictional lines, there is a need for some measure of regional coordination and cooperation.
There are a number of state and federal programs that provide money for some law enforcement activities. TCOG's Criminal Justice Program helps with these coordination efforts by working with the Governor's Criminal Justice Division, the regional law enforcement community, and local policymakers to develop and maintain a regional criminal justice community plan.
Victims of Crime
Victims of crime often need assistance to recover from their ordeal. TCOG's Criminal Justice Program and the Governor's Criminal Justice Division provide funds to area agencies that serve victims in the Texoma Region.
Keeping Schools Safe
Keeping schools in the Texoma Region safe takes time, energy and money. Through TCOG and the Governor's Criminal Justice Division, area schools and communities can apply for funds to promote drug and weapon-free schools and neighborhoods.
