About $600,000 of the grant will go toward enhancements to law enforcement agency accreditation. Another $200,000 will go to the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation’s Badges for Baseball program. The rest will be split between police training on human trafficking and active learning modalities at police academies.

Washington, D.C. will get nearly $900,000 in funding with the majority of the money going toward creating a resource guide for vehicle pursuits.
