Protecting the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people in Idaho since 1919.
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) ensures that recipients of financial assistance from the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and its components are not engaged in prohibited discrimination. The primary objective in accomplishing this mission is to secure prompt and full compliance with all civil rights laws and regulations so that needed Federal assistance may commence or continue (http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/about/offices/ocr.htm).
The Idaho State Police (ISP) is the State Administering Agency (SAA) for seven (7) OJP pass-through grants. As an SAA, the OCR recommended that ISP "develop a comprehensive policy for addressing certain discrimination complaints involving subrecipients of DOJ funds."
