Event Dates

During this webinar, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) personnel will provide an overview of the FY 2023 Virtual Reality De-escalation Site-Based Initiative solicitation. The presenter will discuss the purpose and goals of this funding opportunity, review its eligibility requirements, and address frequently asked questions.

With this opportunity, BJA seeks applications from state, local, campus, and tribal law enforcement to enhance training via the utilization of fully immersive virtual reality-based technology. The training should improve responses to individuals in crisis and improve the de-escalation skills of participants. A plan for how the proposed technology will be integrated into applicant agency’s existing training should be developed.
