The Salinas Police Department is excited to announce the City of Salinas has been awarded the U.S. Department of Justice Victim Specialist Program grant. The Office of Justice Programs has approved the Salinas Police Department for funding for a Victim's Advocate position through the Law Enforcement-Based Victim Specialist Program in the amount of $276,000. The money for this award comes from the federal Crime Victims Fund, which is administered by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC). It is derived not from tax dollars, but from fines, penalty assessments, and bond forfeitures of convicted federal criminal offenders. The grant was established to secure funds to benefit local crime victims' programs. This grant reflects the continuing commitment of the Salinas Police Department to work with local, state, and federal partners to improve service to crime victims, their families, and our community.
