Criminal Justice Programs

With a combination of state and federal funds, the programs in the Criminal Justice Unit support enforcement activities including, but not limited to: suppressing criminal activity, reducing gun violence, reducing crime lab backlogs, and postconviction DNA testing.

The purpose of the EMPG Program is to provide federal grants to States to assist State, local, territorial, and tribal governments in preparing for all hazards, as authorized by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. §§ 5121 et seq.) and Section 662 of the Post Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006, as amended (6 U.S.C. § 762). Title VI of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA to make grants for the purpose of providing a system of emergency preparedness for the protection of life and property in the United States from hazards and to vest responsibility for emergency preparedness jointly in the federal government and the states and their political subdivisions.

The federal government, through the EMPG Program, provides necessary direction, coordination, and guidance, and provides necessary assistance, as authorized in this title, to support a comprehensive all hazards emergency preparedness system.

​Domestic Violence Programs

The mission of the Domestic Violence Unit is to work with units of government and local nonprofits to prevent, reduce and eradicate incidents of domestic violence. The programs administered through this Unit include the establishment and facilitation of the Domestic Violence Advisory Council.

​Unserved/Underserved Victims Programs

The mission of the Underserved Victims Unit is to increase access to culturally appropriate victim services for underserved victims of crime. We strive to accomplish this through the creation of new programs and the enhancement of existing programs to address factors such as race, ethnicity, geographic isolation, language barriers, cultural intolerance, disability, lack of knowledge of the criminal justice system, victim’s rights, and/or lack of appropriate social support. The Unit works with governmental, non-profit and tribal organizations to enhance service delivery to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial needs of underserved victims in California. The Underserved Victims Unit administers approximately 10 programs.

​​Sexual Assault Programs

The Sexual Assault Unit programs are designed to address sexual violence through a variety of efforts including: provision of quality services to sexual assault victims; education and training; resources to rape crisis centers; and training of forensic medical personnel. The programs administered through this Unit includes the facilitation of the State Advisory Committee on Sexual Assault Victim Services.

​Human Trafficking & Children's Division

The Human Trafficking & Children's Division is comprised of the following two units: Children's and Human Trafficking.

​Human Trafficking Programs

The Human Trafficking Unit programs provide funding and technical assistance for the safety and support of victims of labor or sex trafficking. This Unit also oversees programs that provide food, shelter and services to help homeless youth exit street life.

​Children's Programs

The Children's Unit programs are designed to increase treatment services to victims of child abuse and neglect, and training on child abuse issues throughout the State. There are many, varied programs administered through this Unit, in addition to the facilitation of the Child Abduction Task Force.
