Visit https://bjatta.bja.ojp.gov/ to learn more. The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs launched the Diagnostic Center in spring 2012 to serve as a technical assistance resource for state, local and tribal policymakers seeking to implement data-driven strategies to combat crime and improve public safety in their communities. The defining characteristic of the Diagnostic Center is its approach to being smart on crime by helping state and local leaders use local data to apply what works in criminal justice in their communities. This effort ensures limited local resources are invested wisely, federal assets are leveraged where they are needed most and communities reap better public safety outcomes.

Mission: The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) is a U.S. Department of Justice training and technical assistance (TTA) resource to help state, local, and tribal justice agencies achieve safer communities. BJA NTTAC works to improve the criminal justice system by providing expert and coordinated TTA to support practitioners in reducing violent and drug-related crime, supporting law enforcement, managing offenders, and combating victimization. BJA NTTAC provides no-cost TTA in-person and virtually on a wide range of criminal justice topics, including adjudication, corrections, crime prevention, justice information sharing, law enforcement, mental health, substance abuse, violence reduction, and tribal justice. Services may involve assistance implementing programs and strategies, curriculum development, data analysis, classroom and virtual training, peer-to-peer visits, research and information, and strategic planning.
